Most widely held works by Modern Learning Aids, New York
An Electrochemical cell : animated mechanism.( Visual )

1 edition published in 1969 in English and held by 36 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fundamental theorem of the calculus( Visual )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses animation to demonstrate the fundamental theorem of the calculus. Defines F(x) as the area under f(x) from a fixed point a to a variable point x. Shows both functions graphed simultaneously on separate sets of axes to illustrate that F'(x)=f(x)
Limit( Visual )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Defines the term limit, using the idea of neighborhoods. Illustrates the use of the definition with examples of real valued functions of a single real variable
Molecular motions( Visual )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses animation and models to explain how the properties of matter such as fluidity, vaporization, and rate of chemical reactions depend on the types of motion occurring at the molecular level
The Definite integral( Visual )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses animation to represent the definite integral by the method of upper and lower sums
Newton's method( Visual )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses animation to illustrate the notion of an iterative procedure. Presents Newton's method as representative of such a procedure and includes examples
A Million to one( Visual )

1 edition published in 1975 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses animation to demonstrate how only a small force is needed to accelerate and keep in motion a nearly frictionless body. Includes a short statement on inertia
Free fall and projectile motion( Visual )

1 edition published in 1961 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Nathaniel H. Frank explores the behavior of freely falling bodies from a dynamical point of view, leading to the proportionality of gravitational and inertial mass, the independence of perpendicular components of a motion, and the conclusion that Newton's law is a vector relationship. Includes a slow-motion study of two balls being dropped and projected horizontally from the same height and experiments with a large monkey gun
I maximize.( Visual )

in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explains how to determine maximums in functions
John Von Neumann : a documentary( Visual )

2 editions published in 1966 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses rare photographs and films to present a biography of the mathematician John Von Neumann. Includes personal recollections of friends and colleagues as well as detailed descriptions and discussions of his contributions in various fields of science
Shapes and polarities of molecules( Visual )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses electrical effects to illustrate the concept of molecular polarity. Explains that covalent substances give two types of results. Developes a model based on polar and non-polar molecules. Points out that considerations of bond polarity and molecular symmetry correlate the electrical effects and their change as the temperature is varied. Extends the molecular dipole model to explain the differences in solubility, conductivity, and chemical reactivity
The Theorem of the mean.( Visual )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The theorem of the mean is derived from Rolle's theorem; emphasizes the development of the intermediate function to which Rolle's theorem is applied
Solar radiation 2 : The earth's atmosphere( Visual )

3 editions published between 1968 and 1996 in No Linguistic content and English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the spectral distribution of incoming solar radiation, the outgoing infrared terrestrial radiation, and the interactions of these two types of radiant energies with atmospheric gases
Gas pressure and molecular collisions( Visual )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the relationship between gaseous pressure and molecular collisions. Studies the effects of changing the temperature and varying the number of molecules per unit of volume. Uses mechanical models to illustrate the relative rates of effusion of hydrogen, oxygen, carbon dioxide, and sulfur hexafluoride, and the relationship of molecular weight, molecular velocity, and absolute temperature
The Baboon troop( Visual )

1 edition published in 1968 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explores the characteristics and social relationships of the baboon: the role of the male as protector and central figure of the troop; the role of older females and infants; the field evidence of dominance relationships; and the peculiar problem of the maturing male
Volume by shells.( Visual )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Explains that the volume of a torus can be expressed as a definite integral using the shell method. For first year calculus students
Bromine--element from the sea( Visual )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Uses experiments to show the great reactivity of bromine with metals and non-metals; and explores the chemical equilibrium of an aqueous solution. Develops a procedure for the extraction of bromine from a dilute sodium bromide solution, pointing out the essential steps of the process. Shows the principles which have been demonstrated in the laboratory in operation in a commercial plant which annually extracts millions of pounds of bromine from sea water
The Definite integral as a limit.( Visual )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Defines the definite integral using Riemann sums, and stresses the great latitude permissible in selection of subdivisions and representative points. Shows the integral for non-negative functions to exist and equal the area under the graph when the latter exists
Continuity of mapping( Visual )

1 edition published in 1967 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Defines continuity at a point in terms of neighborhood. Includes applications in one-, two-, and three-dimensional Euclidean spaces. Demonstrates the continuity of the composite of two continuous mappings
Let us teach guessing : a demonstration with George Polya by George Pólya( Visual )

1 edition published in 1966 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lecturer George Pólya leads an undergraduate class to discover the number of parts into which 3-space is divided by five arbitrary planes. He identifies the steps involved in plausible reasoning, and points out that they constitute a program for attacking any mathematical or scientific problem
