WildLinAlg12: Generalized dilations and eigenvectors
This video introduces the important idea of changing coordinates in Linear Algebra. A linear transformation can be described using many different matrices, depending on the underlying coordinate system, or ordered basis, which is used to describe the space. The simplest case is when the linear transformation is in diagonal form. Finding such a diagonal form requires finding the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix, which we introduce in this video. We also discuss change of basis matrices.

WildLinAlg10: Equations of lines and planes in 3D
This video shows how we work with lines in the plane and planes in 3D space in Linear Algebra. A line in 2D is represented by a linear equation in x and y, a plane in 3D by a linear equation in x,y and z. Both can also be described in parametric form. It is important to be able to change from a Cartesian to a parametric form. The space of all lines in the plane has a curious connection with the Mobius band. Lines in 3D are somewhat trickier to describe since they require two linear equations.

4.5.2 Thermal effects
This extract is concerned primarily with the chemistry that underpins the operation of the three-way catalytic converter that is placed in the exhaust systems of motor vehicles in order to reduce the emissions of primary pollutants: carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen and volatile organic compounds, including hydrocarbons. Discussion of the various effects of these pollutants and the consequent introduction and refinement of â€˜automotive emission regulationsâ€™ has not been included, nor is the

Test Prep:Math Review (Place Value, Rounding, Fractions, etc.)
This is a good slideshow (61 slides)Â to use in a classroom. If the slideshow is expanded to 'full screen',Â the slidesÂ shouldÂ be easily viewed with a projector as the font size is large.Â Â

The slides have test questions on place value, estimation, rounding, fractions, mental math, multiplication, numbers in standard form, etc. Pause the slide after each question to allow students to answer as the next slide has the answer. These slides would be suitable for fourth and fifth gra

Medicine Games: Blood Typing
Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! In this game you have to blood type each patient and give them a blood transfusion. Are you able to do that? If not, maybe you should read the introduction to blood typing before you start, otherwise you will put the patients' lives in danger!

AlgTop6: Non-orientable surfaces---the Mobius band
A surface is non-orientable if there is no consistent notion of right handed versus left handed on it. The simplest example is the Mobius band, a twisted strip with one side, and one edge. An important deformation gives what we call a crosscap. This is the sixth lecture in this beginner's course on Algebraic Topology, given by Assoc Prof N J Wildberger of the School of Mathematics and Statistics at UNSW.
