Foothill College Library now has a new resource called Films on Demand, which covers an array of subjects, including Mathematics! Here you will find streaming video demonstrations of, for example, Linear Equations, Quadratic Functions, and applications of Geometry and more. There are also TED Talks on a variety of interesting topics, including African Fractalsby Ron Eglash, A Formula for Changing Math Education by Arthur Benjamin, and even one by Robert Lang (creator of the last week's Google-Doodle honoring Origami) entitled: Idea + Square = Origami.
