Basic Complex Analysis
This video gives an excellent overview of the different representations of a complex number. First, Sal reviews a pictorial representation of a complex number as an Argand diagram, then shows how to find the modulus and the argument of a complex number and write a complex number in the form z = r (cos _+isin_), and finally, how to write a complex number in exponential form using EulerÕs relations.

Forces Acting on a Spring
Teaching elastic forces in your physics class is a snap with this resource! Scholars compare the stretch of rubber bands with differing width, then measure the stretch of a spring and calculate force. In a whole-class experiment, wire is attached to the ceiling and stretched by adding weights to the loose end.
