Units of Measurement
Students learn that customary units can be converted to metric units and metric units can be converted to customary units using the following conversion factors: 1 mile = 1.6 kilometers, 1 liter = 2.1 pints, 1 inch = 2.54 centimeters, and so on. Students are then asked to solve problems using these conversion factors, such as 10 kilometers = ____ miles. Students are also asked to determine which customary unit of measurement and which metric unit of measurement are used to measure a given object

Comparing Integers Using Inequalities
In this video they discuss inequalities. They show the greater than/less than symbol. They then explain these symbols using a number line. On a number line the greater than symbol "" "is greater than "or" is to the right of" on the number line. Then they show the "" symbol which is "less than" or "is to the left of" on the number line. They show a number of examples using these symbols. They proceed to the greater than or equal to symbol and the less than or equal to symbol. Once again they do m

Climb and Descent - Lesson 7
This NASA video segment explores how Newton's laws apply to the takeoff of an airplane. Viewers watch an instructor and engineer at NASA's National Test Pilot School and learn that there are four opposing forces on an airplane, that takeoff is the point at which the lift just starts to offset the weight, and that the distance needed for takeoff can be calculated using an equation derived from Newton's second law. The video clip also discusses the extra drag force created by the rolling friction
