Star Life
Visitors to this site can follow the life cycle of a star, beginning with its formation from matter exploded outward by the Big Bang, followed by its expansion into a red giant as nuclear "fuel" is consumed, and ending with its "death" in a supernova, after which it becomes a neutron star or black hole.

Differential Equation Model
This video explains how a function can be modeled using a differential equation if it is growing or shrinking exponentially.  In the differential equation model, k is a constant that determines if the function is growing or shrinking.  If k is greater than 1, the function is growing.  If it is less than 1, the function is shrinking.  (2:20)

Chariots for Apollo - A History of Manned Lunar Spacecraft
This site, originally published as part of NASA's History Series, presents a detailed history of the Apollo program. The story begins in the 1950s with early efforts to beat the Soviet Union into space, carries through the Kennedy administration, with its famous challenge to land a man on the moon and return him safely to Earth by the end of the 1960s, and culminates with the landing of Apollo 11 on the Moon in July 1969. The site features text, pictures, references, and several appendices conta

"The Idea of Order at Key West" by Wallace Stevens (poetry reading)
One can gain insight into what poets are trying to convey from listening to them read their poems. Most poets read with a conspicuous mannerism which, I suggest, mimics a pattern of speech they heard in early life that had a powerful influence on them. In Bukowski's work, for instance, I'm sure I hear the dismissive, jeering voice of his abusive father. Wallace Stevens reads with a "dying fall", as though he's casting a spell - somewhat like a preacher reading a lesson. Listen to Wallace S

Solving Logarithmic Equations
Just as logarithms are used to access exponents in exponential equations, exponentiation can be used to access the insides of a logarithm.  This video explains how solving logarithmic equations often involves exponentiation of logarithms in order to get rid of the log and access its insides.  Sometimes the product, quotient, or power rules of logarithms are used when solving logarithmic equations.  (1:20)
