Rating
0.0 stars

This video demonstrates the difference between heat and temperature and examines how both are defined in terms of particles. It illustrates the transfer of heat energy and uses a particle model to explain a number of everyday phenomena, including why things expand when they are heated to the role that temperature plays in changes of states of matter.

Triangles and Quadrilaterals: Geometry Session 2
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

This site contains several distinct lessons that focus on the defining characteristics of triangles and quadrilaterals. Beginning with illustrations of various categories of triangles (acute, obtuse, right, scalene, isosceles, equilateral), students use an applet to explore what combinations of three side lengths can constitute a triangle. They then extend these techniques to the study of quadrilaterals. The unit concludes with a contrast between the rigidity of triangles and the nonrigidity of quadrilaterals, with implications for the construction trades. Problems and solutions, suggestions for homework exploration, video clips, and notes for the teacher are included.
