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.
