Cosine Ratios
This video explains how cosine ratios, along with sine and tangent ratios, are ratios of two different sides of a right triangle. Cosine ratios are specifically the ratio of the side adjacent to the represented base angle over the hypotenuse. In order to find the measure of the angle, we must understand inverse trigonometric functions. (2:03)

The basis of the system of precedent is the principle of stare decisis and this requires a later court to use the same reasoning as an earlier court where the two cases raise the same legal issues. For example:

• House of Lordsâ€™ decisions are binding on all other courts in the legal system, except the House of Lords itself.

• The Court of Appeal is bound by previous decisions of the House of Lords. The Court of Appeal generally is a

The effects of a protein that is absent, or present but not doing its job, may not be evident for many years. This is called late onset, and is exemplified by Wilson's disease. Many molecules within the body require small amounts of minerals such as iron, magnesium or copper to function properly. There are mechanisms for absorbing these minerals from the diet. However, in excess, these same minerals can be toxic, as is the case with copper. So there are also mechanisms for getting rid

You may have noticed that sometimes the order in which calculations are carried out seems to matter and sometimes it does not. When using a calculator, it is very important to know the order in which it will do calculations. It is not always the order in which you enter them.

Although written English is read from left to right, this is not the case for all written languages (Chinese is read top to bottom, right to left). With mathematics, the order of the written operations does not alw

Division is probably the most awkward of the four arithmetic operations. Since you may have a calculator, you do not need to be able to carry out complicated divisions by hand, but you do need to carry out simple divisions in order to check your calculator calculations. Division is the reverse process of multiplication. The quantity 12 Ã· 3 tells us how many times 3 goes into 12. Since 4 Ã— 3 = 12, 12 Ã· 3 = 4.

In using IT effectively you may need to learn how to use particular features of the software applications involved. In word processing, style sheets and templates help you set up consistent formats for essays, reports and other documents. In spreadsheets, macros â€“ sets of instructions that can be repeated as often as necessary â€“ can help you to perform complex numerical operations more easily. In databases, you may need to know how to set up structures so that you can store and retrieve i

This unit began by exploring some basic issues involving computers:

• the nature of data and information;

• why human beings need (and want) computers;

• the prevalence of computers in modern life.

The unit looked briefly at how a computer-based society affects the average person who (whether he or she knows it or not) has a persona that consists of data about them held by many diverse organisations.

Protectionists stage protests across Germany. Andreas Kluth, our Berlin bureau chief, explains why anti-Americanism and a fear of globalisation are at the heart of the demonstrations. Also on the show: al-Qaeda's pragmatic comeback; and what are the odds that a party-less outsider could become France's next president? Helen Joyce hosts.

Galapagos Land Iguana Feeding
This short video gives excellent real life footage of a Galapagos Land Iguana feeding. This species is very large, growing to lengths of over a meter. The short head is blunt and the back legs are thick and powerful, with long sharp claws on the toes. Students will enjoy the close up views of this amazing reptile searching for food in the rain. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make real world connections between nature and the classroom. (Less Than 2 M

As well as contributing to meaning, context can also influence the actual words and sentences that we use. Do you sometimes say â€˜Hiâ€™ and at other times say â€˜Good morningâ€™? Do you have a â€˜telephone voiceâ€™? This variation in language may be done deliberately, but often it is not. There are two main reasons as to why we adjust the way we speak:

• to fit in with our audience or what we feel they expect of us; you may use â€˜professionalâ€™ langu
