Teaching Company tutorials

From the Teaching Company:

College-level not-for-credit courses taught in audio and video formats.

Change and motion calculus made clear - Michael Starbird
Call Number: DVD 2444
This course carefully shows how calculus explains motion-and that this insight is composed of only, two simple ideas. Professor Starbird explains how calculus shows how everything that changes over time can be understood with its insights, uniting the way we see economics, astronomy, engineering, and even baseball, because it is an insight into the nature of reality itself.

Discrete mathematics - Arthur T. Benjamin
Call Number: DVD 2464

Meaning from data statistics made clear - Michael Starbird
Call Number: DVD 1660
Explanations for terms such as mean, median, percentile, quartile, statistically significant, and bell curve, and scores of other statistical concepts are covered. The emphasis is on the role of statistics in daily life, giving a broad overview of how statistical tools are employed in risk assessment, college admissions, drug testing, fraud investigation, and a host of other applications.

An introduction to number theory - Edward B. Burger
Call Number: DVD 2458
Called "the queen of mathematics" by the legendary mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss, number theory is one of the oldest and largest branches of pure mathematics. Practitioners of number theory delve into the structure and nature of numbers and into the remarkable, startling, and often beautiful relationships that exist among them.
