Point, Line, Plane

The instructor uses an electronic sketchpad to explain and demonstrates the fundamental concepts (undefined terms)of geometry: point, line, plane.

Angles of a transverse line when you intersect parallel lines are discussed in this video. Video discusses parallel lines and what a transverse line is. Video then goes into labeling the angles, such as corresponding angles, opposite angles, alternate interior angles, alternate exterior angles, and supplementary angles. The video shows how to find the measurement of each of the angles using what you know about

Algebra Applicatons: Variables and Equations Using TI_Nspire Graphing Calculator

In this episode of two real-world explorations are developed. Simulations of a river are used to bring real-world, relevant applications of algebra to students. The episode also

integrates technology through the use of the Texas Instruments

TI-Nspire graphing calculator. All keystrokes on the calculator are clearly shown. Dynamic river footage and animations bring the variables and equations in algebra math concepts to life.

Immanuel Kant: The Great Synthesizer

This video describes Immanuel Kant's great synthesis of the rationalist and empiricist philosophical traditions. Kant famously stated "Percepts without concepts are empty; concepts without percepts are blind." Kant argues that our experience of reality is not merely passive, but rather that the mind actively structures how we encounter the world. The video also explains the difference bet

Basic Math: Lesson 6 - #5 - Other Fractional Expressions

Concepts covered: Decimal Fraction, Percentage, and Ratio.

Basic Math: Lesson 6 - Video Clip #6 - Converting Fractional Expressions

Magic School Bus "Gets Swamped"

Travel with Ms. Frizzle and the class as they learn more about wetlands. This Magic School Bus video will cover the following two concepts: (1) Wetlands are low, marshy areas that are wet at least part of the year. and (2) Wetlands help to clean water by slowing it, allowing sediments to settle out and plants and bacteria to purify the water. Run time 22 minutes.

Isostacy

What is isostacy and how do heavy objects effect the surface of the earth? Find out in this short, computer-animated video. The following key concepts will be briefly covered: isostacy, balls exhibit isostacy, Earth exhibits isostacy, and causes of isostacy.

Magic School Bus Goes On Air

Join Ms. Frizzle and the class as they shrink and get stuck inside an "empty" jar of air. This Magic School Bus video will teach the following two concepts: (1) Air takes up space and pushes on everyting it touches. and (2) If you squeeze air into a smaller space, the air pushes back with more pressure - air pressure. 22 minutes.

Orbitals

Instructor talks briefly about the theories of Bohr and introduces orbitals. Instructor uses his computer screen and different colors to educate students. Instructor says this video series introduces information covered in a first-year high school course in chemistry.

Magic School Bus "Meets Molly Cule"

Travel with Ms. Frizzle and the class as they shrink down in size to help Wanda wash a car and make it spotless. This Magic School Bus episode covers the following two concepts about molecules: (1) Everything is made of incredibly tiny molecules. and (2) The special characteristics of each thing - hardness, stretchyness, stickyness and so on - are determined in part by size, shape, and attraction of its molecules. Run time 22 minutes.

Dr. Loopy's Blinding you with Science #2: Layers and erosion

This is episode #2 of Blinding you with Science. This series was produced to assists elementary students in understanding science concepts. In this episode Dr. Loopy and his friends discuss how layers are formed in nature and how erosion works. Run time 12:09.

Magic School Bus "Rocks and Rolls"

Travel with Ms. Frizzle and the class as they are turned into rock-kids and learn about erosion. This Magic School Bus episode will cover the following two concepts: (1) Water may look weak compared with solid rock, but give it time and even the hardest rocks cannot withstand its force. and (2) Water sculpts the Earth over time. It carves out canyons and valleys, breaks down rocks into sand and soil, and deposits them to build up new land.

Rewable and Nonrenewable Energy and Energy Resources

This is another in the series of Blinding you with Science videos produced to assist elementary students with science concepts. In this episode Dr. Loopy and his friends look at renewable and non-renewable energy resources. Run time 30:00.

Magic School Bus "In the Arctic"

Join Ms. Frizzle and the class as they try to stay warm in the Arctic. This Magic School Bus episode addresses two basic concepts about heat. (1) Heat moves from warmer to cooler things. and (2) Blocking heat flow with layers of stuff (insulation) reduces heat loss. Run time 22 minutes.

Lasers

Lasers are more than just science fiction. Learn about lasers, how they work and how they are classified in this short, computer-animated video. The following key concepts will be briefly covered: lasers, laser technology, atoms, energizing atoms, energy states, photons, mediums and medium types, how lasers focus photons, and laser classifications.
