What videos have stunned you? What videos have captured your attention? What videos would you like others to share with you?

Parents and students

Send me four or five words that describe a unique video.   What videos would you like to share with others?
Take time to check the spelling...  Spellcheck doesnot catch every vocabulary error... 

You will receive a free ebook copy of the 500 Video project.  The videos that I select (with advice from sixteen teachers and parents) will include some videos that students and parents have suggested for the project.  The idea is this:  If parents and children sit together every evening (Mon-Friday) for a year, that's about 250 sittings.  What if they watched two videos and discussed the videos?

Professor Bartlett made this presentation about growth around 1982...  I saw it on a video in Melbourne, Fla. at Brevard Community College.  Hmmm, the value of VHS videotape.
This is how I learned the RULE OF 72.  From a video.  I didn't get it in school.
4% growth compounded will double a population in 18years
2% growth will double a population in 356 years
12% grwoth will double a population in 6 years.
What is the pattern?  6 x 12% = 72% but it actually adds up to 100% (or double)
