Clear Sunscreen: How Light Interacts with Matter
This unit explores issues related to size and scale, specifically the effect of the size of nanopowders on the interactions of energy and matter (e.g., the absorption of light, addressing the electromagnetic spectrum and associated wavelengths). For example, old sunscreens use "large" zinc oxide particles, which block ultraviolet light but scatter visible light, giving the cream a white color. If nanopowders of zinc oxide are used instead, the cream is transparent, because the diameter of each n
This video describes how sine ratios, along with cosine and tangent ratios, are ratios of the lengths of two sides of the triangle. Sine ratios in particular are the ratios of the length of the side opposite the angle they represent over the hypotenuse. Sine ratios are useful in trigonometry when dealing with triangles and circles. (2:41)

Exploring childrens' learning

This video describes how angles are formed when two parallel lines are intersected by a transversal (same side interior (between the parallel lines) and same side exterior (outside the parallel lines)). Since alternate interior and alternate exterior angles are congruent and since linear pairs of angles are supplementary, same side angles are supplementary. (1:53)
