This Math Shorts episode explains the term scientific notation and provides several examples in converting extreme numbers to and from scientific notation. It also demonstrates how to multiply numbers using scientific notation. Please visit the PBS Learning Media library (http://www.pbslearningmedia.org/resource/muen-math-ee-scientific-notation/scientific-notation/) to access the supplementary learning materials included with this video. This video was made for the PBS Learning Media library, thanks to a generous grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It was produced in collaboration with Utah Education Network. Common Core State Standards: CCSS.Math.Cont.8.EE.A.4 ( Grade 8 ): Perform operations with numbers expressed in scientific notation, including problems where both decimal and scientific notation are used. Use scientific notation and choose units of appropriate size for measurements of very large or very small quantities (e.g., use millimeters per year for seafloor spreading). Interpret scientific notation that has been generated by technology.

This Math Shorts episode helps students understand how to find the greatest common factor of two whole numbers. This video was made for the PBS Learning Media library, thanks to a generous grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It was produced in collaboration with Utah Education Network. Common Core State Standards: CCSS.Math.Cont.6.NS.B.4 (Grade 6): Find the greatest common factor of two whole numbers less than or equal to 100 and the least common multiple of two whole numbers less than or equal to 12. Use the distributive property to express a sum of two whole numbers 1–100 with a common factor as a multiple of a sum of two whole numbers with no common factor. For example, express 36 + 8 as 4 (9 + 2).

This animated "Math Shorts” help students understand slope with similar triangles. This video was made for the PBS LearningMedia library, thanks to a generous grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It was produced in collaboration with Utah Education Network. Common Core State Standards: CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.B.6 (Grade 8): Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation y = mx for a line through the origin and the equation y = mx + b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b.

This Math Shorts episode helps students understand how to apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. This video was made for the PBS Learning Media library, thanks to a generous grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It was produced in collaboration with Utah Education Network. Common Core State Standards: CCSS.Math.Cont.6.EE.A.3 ( Grade 6): Apply the properties of operations to generate equivalent expressions. For example, apply the distributive property to the expression 3 (2 + x) to produce the equivalent expression 6 + 3x; apply the distributive property to the expression 24x + 18y to produce the equivalent expression 6 (4x + 3y); apply properties of operations to y + y + y to produce the equivalent expression 3y.

This animated "Math Shorts” illustrates linear equations in one variable with one solution, infinitely many solutions, or no solutions. This video was made for the PBS LearningMedia library, thanks to a generous grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It was produced in collaboration with Utah Education Network. Common Core State Standards: CCSS.Math.Content.8.EE.C.7a (Grade 8): Understand that solutions to a system of two linear equations in two variables correspond to points of intersection of their graphs, because points of intersection satisfy both equations simultaneously.
