Fill and Pour - A Virtual Manipulative
Your goal is to fill one container with the requested amount of liquid by filling, emptying, and pouring between the two containers. There are easy-to-understand instructions to the right of the manipulative.
How High? - A Virtual Manipulative (Volume)
Learn about conservation of volume by pouring a liquid from one container to another container with a different dimensions:
Choose the shape of container to use by clicking on one of the shape options. The rectangular base is probably the easiest to work with at the beginning. The container on the left appears, partially filled with a liquid. You are to predict (or guess) how high will liquid go when it is poured from the container on the left into the one on the right.

Virtual Frog Heart Dissection
This 45 second video demonstrating the dissection of a frog heart. It demonstrates how cuts are made to the pericardium, truncus arteriosii and the caudal vena cava to remove and open the frog's heart to see its internal structure. This is a small clip from the Digital Frog Virtual Disssection program.
Introduction to the Dissection of a Virtual Frog
This short, 46 second clip demonstrates initial three cuts made to the skin of the body cavity to reveal the frog's muscles. This is a small clip from the Digital Frog Virtual Dissection program.
Venn Diagrams - A Virtual Manipulative
This virtual manipulative represents three sets as overlapping circles. You can use it to represent set operations such as intersections, unions, and subsets.
The goal for each exercise is to shade the portion of the diagram corresponding to the given set.
You may begin by shading one or more entire sets (A, B, or C) and then clearing portions. When you have only the desired portion shaded, click the Check button.

What is the magnetic field?
The Tabletop Explainer is an intermittent educational video. Explains what magnetic field lines are, which way they go, and they work. This is a basic video that gives a brief lesson.
Magnetic Field - Sixty Symbols
Check out this super powerful magnet - just don't get too close with a video camera! This video discusses magnets, however the magnet they use in this video is really powerful. Video gives information on how a magnet works and the variety of magnets there are. Video is of average quality. Video would be good for middle elementary, middle and high school students. This is an interesting video for any student studying magnetism.

Two Terrains - Distance, Rate, and Time - A Virtual Manipulative
This manipulative is from the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics website. Some vehicles fly down the highway, while others are dirt-track specialists. This activity allows you to explore the relationships between distance, rate, and time. Can you identify the best path for a vehicle? Try to predict what will happen if you set on‑road or off‑road performance measures.
Note: There are more instructions by the manipulative.
Proof (Advanced): Field from Infinite Plate (Part 1)
Electric field generated by a uniformly charged, infinite plate. This video, starts with a black screen because the instructor, in his conversational tone, uses it as a 'chalkboard.' Instructor uses different colors for clarification. Run time 13:27.
Proof (Advanced): Field from Infinite Plate (Part 2)
We see that the infinite, uniformly charged plate generates a constant electric field (independent of the height above the plate). This video, starts with a black screen because the instructor, in his conversational tone, uses it as a 'chalkboard.' Instructor uses different colors for clarification. Run time 11:28.
The Electric Field
Michael Faraday's vision of lines of constant force in space laid the foundation for the modern idea of the field of force. Electric fields of static charges; Gauss' law and the conservation of flux.
