Area and volume ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This video describes how to calculate the area of rectangles and other shapes--both geometrical and irregular--and how to determine the volume of a rectangular solid. Dramatized segments and computer animations focus on calculating lawn dimensions at a sod farm; creatively redesigning a cereal box while retaining the original volume; and using the Pythagorean Theorem to work out the coverage area for a kitchen floor being tiled diagonally.--website
Measurement ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This video describes how to estimate costs of products and services, determine the circumference of an object and its effect on motion, and calculate area and volume. Dramatized segments and computer animations illustrate ways to use measurements taken from blueprints to estimate construction costs; determine tire sizes, which affect vehicle speed; and calculate a running track's circumference to fairly stagger the start lines--website
Formulas ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This video describes how to construct formulas and equations, solve equations with one variable, and use formulas in basic computer spreadsheets. Dramatized segments and computer animations demonstrate ways to predict future sales and costs of cordless phones at an electronics store by using spreadsheets; select an economical rental car by devising a formula to compare competing rates; and determine a small airplane's gross weight before take-off.--website
Ratios ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This video describes how to identify and form equivalent ratios and ratio tables, express ratios as both fractions and decimals, and interpret map scales to calculate distances. Dramatized segments and computer animations show ways to determine which combinations of a mountain bike's gears provide the most power and speed; custom-design a roof at a construction office to create a high attic ceiling; and interpret a map to decide if there is enough time to drive the distance to a rock concert.--website
Logical reasoning ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This video describes how to recognize and apply inductive and deductive reasoning. Dramatized segments and computer animations involve determining a crime suspect's guilt or innocence based on clues from a series of convenience store robberies; finding a strategy for winning a game played with coins; and matching students to the sports or musical instruments they play as a part of a puzzle--website
Level Spacings for SL(2,p) by John D Lafferty ( Book )
2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Abstract: "We investigate the eigenvalue spacing distributions for randomly generated 4-regular Cayley graphs on SL₂(F[subscript p]) by numerically calculating their spectra. We present strong evidence that the distributions are Poisson and hence do not follow the Gaussian orthogonal ensemble. Among the Cayley graphs of SL₂(F[subscript p]) we consider are the new expander graphs recently discovered by Y. Shalom. In addition, we use a Markov chain method to generate random 4-regular graphs, and observe that the average eigenvalue spacings are closely approximated by the Wigner surmise."
Probability ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This video describes how to use statistics to determine risk and how to calculate the likelihood of two and three independent events occurring simultaneously. Dramatized segments and computer animations involve learning how risk factors influence the cost of car insurance; assessing a fire department's request for a new truck and crew; and figuring out the odds of dice combinations

Positive and negative numbers ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This video describes how to perform computations using positive and negative numbers, interpret the results, and determine the break-even point in a business situation. Dramatized segments and computer animations illustrate why bridges require expansion joints; how to track the rushing yardage of a high school football player; and how to adjust profit and debt to bring a start-up lawn-care business into the black. (20 minutes)--website
Coordinates ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This video describes how to identify points, plot ordered pairs on a graph, use map coordinates to find locations, and apply graphical break-even analysis to linear functions. Dramatized segments and computer animations illustrate ways to describe positions on a game board by using coordinates; program an industrial robot to assemble TVs in a factory; use a road map while traveling; and evaluate the impact of franchise costs and product prices on profit at a frozen yogurt bar company.--website
Fractions ( Visual )

This video describes the meaning of fractions and how to solve problems involving sums and products. Dramatized segments and computer animations focus on adjusting ingredient amounts to vary the yield of recipes at a bakery; deciding whether to hire an untrained worker at a bike shop by projecting overtime wages and short-term productivity loss; and learning to read musical notation including fractional measures.--website
Connecting with networks ( )
2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Connections can be physical, as with bridges, or immaterial, as with friendships. Both types of connections can be understood using the same mathematical framework called network theory, or graph theory, which is a way to abstract and quantify the notion of connectivity. This unit looks at how this branch of mathematics provides insights into extremely complicated networks such as ecosystems."--Annenberg website
The beauty of symmetry ( )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In mathematics, symmetry has more than just a visual or geometric quality. Mathematicians comprehend symmetries as motions--motions whose interactions and overall structure give rise to an important mathematical concept called a 'group.' This unit explores Group Theory, the mathematical quantification of symmetry, which is key to understanding how to remove structure from (i.e., shuffle) a deck of cards or to fathom structure in a crystal."--Annenberg website
