Laura D'Andrea Tyson, S.K. and Angela Chan Professor of Global Management, Haas School of Business, on what we can learn from emerging markets
Classifying clouds is crucial to understanding weather systems, learn how to become a meteorologist and predict the weather in this free video. Part of the series: How To Predict The Weather. Run time 01:52.
Clouds are formed by parcels of rising air that cool and create tiny droplets of water. Learn about dew points and how they affect moisture going from a gas to a liquid with help from a meteorologist in this video on understanding weather. Run time 01:02.
Poor sound quality, but content is important.This unit provides fifth through seventh graders a better understanding of food safety through real-life examples and enjoyable activities. The teacher needs to order the free unit of study first.
This is a short, culminating activity that can be used to assess your students' understanding of the steps needed to determine if a water source is contaminated and how it got that way, and to suggest possible methods of cleanup or remediation. Students review a portion of the film "A Civil Action" and identify the problem and the people involved. Students then take the role of environmental scientist and apply their knowledge of water and hazardous waste contamination to create a plan to help l
Understanding how the headline unemployment rate. This clip will show how to figure out how unemployment rate (U-3) is calculated. (This video shows a computer screen where the narrator explains what he is saying.)
This video (put out by a teacher or professor) uses slides and narration to explain how we have a global economy, beginning with the economic agreements right after WWII to the internet.
A professionally produced report on the work of Global Writes and the way in which it engages students in writing through the teaching of slam poetry. The video features scenes from classroom sessions, and interviews with students, teachers, and school administrators.
Shwetak Patel heads up the University of Washington's Ubiquitous Computing Research Lab where researchers combine computing technology, computer science and electrical engineering to solve health and energy problems.
Understanding weather advisories is crucial to predicting the weather. Learn how to predict these meteorological advisories in this video. Meteorologist Melissa Schenk briefly explains air quality, smog advisories, and the UV index. Part of the series: How To Predict The Weather. Run time 01:04.

Just like with building triads, building a major scale is about understanding the intervals between each note of the scale. If you understand this, you can build any major scale.
All major scales follow this pattern:
(W = Whole Step, H = Half Step)
W - W - H - W - W - W - H
So let's look at the notes of a C major scale. They are shown below with the interval between each note in parenthesis:
C (W) D (W) E (H) F (W) G (W) A (W) B (H
Companies are overreacting to the economic downturn but, had they been better prepared in the first place, they wouldn’t find themselves in such a fix. This is according to Ludo Van der Heyden, INSEAD Professor of Technology and Operations Management.
In the beginning, the online virtual world was a place for action video games such as Grand Theft Auto, or hanging out and chatting. Today, it’s a very different place. Commerce and capitalism have entered the picture.
Sal Khan continues his discussion using the same statement as the last video in this series, but adds a different logic problem to solve: "Identify the hypothesis and conclusion of the following statement, and determine whether the statement is always, sometimes, or never true." In this video, Sal offers an introduction to understanding mathematical logic statements. Sal uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points. (06:43)
This video offers a brief glimpse of understanding function questions on the SAT Math exam. (01:26)
A simulation game designed to create better understanding of the problems facing refugees. Participants go through a number of steps which attempt to simulate the refugee experience, from flight to arrival in the refugee camp as well as the difficulties of integration and repatriation of refugees.
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The interviewer probes for ideas about how mountains wear down. He asks the student to draw a picture of how the mountain formed. The pictures show the student has the idea of the mountain wearing down and leveling over long periods of time but believes that it was due primarily to biological agents like lichens and mosses.
provides lessons for learning about the relationship between chemicals in the environment and human health. Topics include the science of toxicology, dose-response relationships, individual susceptibility, risk assessment, and environmental hazards. Students are introduced to the ever-changing nature of our understanding of how chemicals influence the health of living organisms.
How can we make sense of the living world? During this session, a systematic approach to biological classification is introduced as a starting point for understanding the nature of the remarkable diversity of life on Earth.,Conversations from 7 year olds take place about how to characterize an animal.
