This video was prepared principally with high school students in mind. However, teachers at many different levels may find this helpful. My 9-year old grandson (3rd Grader) watched it, said it was really interesting and entertaining and that his classmates will like it too. Of course, each teacher must decide how to present the material. One suggestion is to solicit questions from the students during the lecture and be prepared to pause the video for class discussion at that point. Should anyone have questions, feel free to contact me via email.
Additional notes: This web page presentation is in Adobe Flash format, if you prefer using a Windows movie format (wmv) you may watch it online here.We realize that there may be schools that do not have the ability to connect a computer to a large viewing screen for presentation. And, having 20 or more students gathered around a computer would not be an attractive option. Therefore, we will make this presentation available in DVD format at our cost of $6. To order the DVD contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
