Jim Reed's Home Page (Interactive Activities) Web Resources Design: The high school mathematics resources created over the last two years have a different design. The dynamic interactive activities typically have a visual and symbolic output with a means to change length/parameters. For the units completed, I have tried to develop a comprehensive, concise set of math notes with applets that the reader to understand/remember the concepts and enhance their math intuition for real life applications. For most of these resources I want the user to start exploring the applet to discover as much of the pattern themselves, then use the notes on the left to fill in the rest of the pattern. I am using my own invention, CET (Closed Eyes Test) to check the effectiveness of the resources.

125 Great Science Videos: From Astronomy to Physics & Psychology Astronomy & Space Travel A Brief, Wondrous Tour of Earth (From Outer Space) – Video – Recorded from August to October, 2011 at the International Space Station, this HD footage offers a brilliant tour of our planet and stunning views of the aurora borealis.A Universe from Nothing – Video – In 53 minutes, theoretical physicist Lawrence Krauss answers some big enchilada questions, including how the universe came from nothing.A Year of the Moon in 2.5 Minutes – Video – The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter has been orbiting the moon for over a year.

Commute Map In Traffic: Why We Drive the Way We Do (and What It Says About Us), the author states that commute times throughout history have remained steady at roughly a half hour in each direction. Advances in transportation technology (our feet, horses, bicycles, trains, automobiles, flying cars, etc.) allow us to live farther from where we work. This got me thinking about my own commute from Berkeley to San Francisco, how it compares to those of my neighbors, and how commutes vary across the country. This visualization draws a red circle at the center of each zip code indicating the number of people who travel to or from that area. The blue lines show the driving directions. Notes About The Data

Algebra & Geometry - Homework and Study Help - Free help with your Algebra homework Can I take a course at HippoCampus for credit? How do I enroll in a course at HippoCampus? Are there any fees to take your courses? How do I make a comment or ask a question? How do I get individual help with my homework assignment? What are the preferred texts? How to Avoid Plagiarism Plagiarism is stealing; it is the act of passing off another person's intellectual property as your own and taking credit for another person's work. Colleges and universities take academic dishonesty very seriously and are very hard on students who commit plagiarism. Some possible consequences include receiving a failing grade for an assignment, failing the entire course, and even expulsion from school. Copyright is the law put in place to prevent plagiarism.

Free fraction videos online Enjoy free online math videos on these fraction topics: (Fraction videos, part 2, are on this page.) The videos are recorded in high-density (HD) and are viewable both here as well as at my Youtube channel. These videos are usable for students, teachers, and parents. You can use them... To learn these topics yourself (if you're a student for example, or an adult needing a refresher)As lesson plans for teaching these topics. Free Math Textbooks Free textbooks (aka open textbooks) written by knowledgable scholars are a relatively new phenomenon. Below, find a meta list of Free Math Textbooks, part of our larger collection 200 Free Textbooks: A Meta Collection. Also see our online collection, 1200 Free Online Courses from Top Universities.

K-12 Algebra Applets--Arlen Strader of the Texas A & M University has two algebra tiles applet pages to help middle and high school students explore factoring of quadratic equations by arranging given tiles into a rectangle: Algebra Tiles1 (easy version-coefficients positive) and Algebra Tiles2 (hard version-coefficients positive and negative). There are also applets for Cartesian coordinates, slope, parallel and perpendicular lines, and Pythagorean Theorem.
