This video is accompanied by text. "The signing of Jayâ€™s Treaty, which settled violations of the Treaty of Paris and averted the threat of war with England, induced angry reactions from both American and European politicians. Democratic-Republicans believed the treaty was a humiliating surrender to the British. French leaders, meanwhile, viewed it as a step toward forming a union with their enemy, a flagrant breach of the Franco-American Treaty of 1778. However, an unexpected consequence of th

This means, for instance, that if you double one value, the effect is to double the other, and if you third one value, the upshot is that the other is divided by three as well. And the fact that the relationship is directly proportional has an important consequence for the graph-it will necessarily be a straight line.

Only two points are needed to draw a straight-line graph. Choosing one of the points is straightforward, it is the origin of the graph. Why? Because zero distance on the m

In coordinate geometry we generally use rectangular (or Cartesian) coordinate axes, as illustrated below, to describe the Euclidean plane. We can represent any point in the plane uniquely by an ordered pair of coordinates (a, b); that is, any point in the plane has precisely one possible pair of coordinates with respect to the chosen axes.

The old Marxist apocalyptical fear of ever-rising inequality in capitalist societies is growing. The capitalist elite, it is said, benefit from a dynamic of infinite accumulation of wealth and will be able soon to buy everything and everybody, including the government. This fear of unlimited accumulation of wealth by a few was the main theme of Thomas Piketty’s Capital in the Twenty-First Century, published in French in 2013. For example, Piketty writes:

It would be a serious mist

Dams are big walls that are built to hold the river back. This is a great teaching resource for the elementary classroom and/or special education students. This would work well in conjunction with a science unit on natural resources and energy (1:06).Â

Finding your paperwork or electronic files can be a problem. You may find that even if you do have some sort of filing system, your structure soon gets quite large with files in multiple locations, which can be hard to navigate. You may find yourself making arbitrary decisions about which folder to place a document in. It may make sense now but in the future, when you look where you think it should be, it's not there.

At times like this you may resort to the search command from the Wind
