        COOL SCHOOL TOOLS - MATH TOPIC OR GRADE LEVEL

      http://www.coolschooltools.com/TFM-MathTopic.html

  Math educator Tim Fahlberg has created a variety of
  whiteboard movies. Requiring a Shockwave plug-in, the
  movies cover these topics:

    - 4th Grade Mathematics
    - 7th Grade
    - Intermediate Algebra (114 Movies)
    - Integrated Math 2 (Algebra, Geometry, Probability &
        Statistics)
    - Algebra
    - Probability
    - Mathematics of Finance

  A whiteboard movie (WM) is a multimedia screen recording of
  writing on an electronic whiteboard (real or virtual) with
  or without voice and/or subtititles. WMs can be
  non-interactive, with playback controls similar to a VCR, or
  interactive, requiring input from the viewer. WMs can also
  be extended to include screen recordings of software
  applications (On-screen calculators, Excel, Internet
  Explorer, AutoCAD, etc).

          AMS RELEASES LATEST MATHEMATICAL MOMENTS

           http://www.ams.org/ams/mathmoments.html

  Ever wonder how miles of film can fit on a disk less than
  six inches across?

  Or how the tiny fragments in an archaeological dig can be
  reassembled?

  Answers to these questions and more are in the American
  Mathematical Society's latest Mathematical Moments, which
  promote appreciation and understanding of the role
  mathematics plays in science, nature, technology, and human
  culture.

  These introductory "snapshots" provide a handy, eye-catching,
  and concise way to show the many applications of
  mathematics -- in archaeology, data compression, CAT-scans,
  architecture, modern fountain design, the portable
  20 Questions game, bin packing, and machine translation -- to
  audiences such as elected officials, students, parents and
  school teachers and administrators.
