Chanting and enchanting animals - Chap. 6/6 This video shows how frogs are becoming extinct. Researches travel to a stream to try and find a female toad that is disappearing. They look under rocks, in water, and under leaves. They have searched this area six times and have not found any female, they would like to find one so they can use it for reproduction and save it from extinction. They explain why there is such an amphibian extinction currently going on, the eviden

Velocity and Time
Unlike Lorentz, Albert Einstein was motivated to perfect the central ideas of physics rather than to explain the Michelson-Morley experiment. The result was a wholly new understanding of the meaning of space and time, including such matters as the transformation of velocities, time dilation, and the twin paradox.
Expectations for Success: Motivation and Learning
Teachers can enhance their students’ motivation by encouraging them to be thoughtfully and critically engaged in the learning process, by supporting their drive for mastery and understanding, and by helping them become self-confident. This 27 minute program takes a second look at classrooms seen previously to show how motivational techniques work in concert with other learning theories. Stanford University School of Education Dean Deborah Stipek adds her insight to this program
