Using Simulation on the Ti-83 to Explain the Two Children Problem
What is probability? High schoolers will determine the probability of the "two children" problem. They will simulate the "two children" problem using a graphing calculator and a sample size of 250 two-children families. Great application!

Sketch the Graph of a Parabola
How many ways can you graph a quadratic? The video shows two approaches to graphing a quadratic expression that is initially in standard form. The first method finds the vertex using -b/2a. The second approach is to find (h,k).

Sketching a Graph from a Story Problem
One of the beauties of mathematics is the ability to take words and turn them into symbols. The lesson uses a graph to tell a story, and translates a description of water changing temperatures into a graph. The instructor then reviews...

Calculus: Derivatives 2 (new HD version)
Sal continues where he left off with the last video, ï¿½Derivatives 1,ï¿½ by looking at the equation y = x2 and examining the slope of the secant line at a specific point. He continues with defining the limit as _x approaches zero to get...

Calculus: Derivatives 2.5 (new HD version)
By defining the formal definition of a derivative, fï¿½(x), Sal is able to find the general form of the derivate function for the example f(x) = x2. He continues to stress the importance of an intuitive understanding of derivative...
