The instructor in this video, Sal Khan, uses a graphing calculator to solve quadratic equations. Mr. Khan uses computer software (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education.... The viewer may want to open the video to 'full screen' as the instructor fits a lot of information on a dark screen.[more]

This video is an introduction to circles. The instructor explores the effect of changing parameters in the equation and graphing circles on a co-ordinate plane. He also instructs how to find the radius, center, and points on circumference. White boar...d in a class setting, some interaction, engaging, several examples of increasing complexity. The discussion is clear and understandable. (06:49)[more]

This is an excellent video detailing how to make graphs of the sine and cosine functions. The tutorial details how to use the coordinate plane to make graphs of the function that are easy to read and understand. This is particularly useful for unders...tanding how to use the sine and cosine function. This is an exerpt. (3:40)[more]
