The Theorem of Pythagoras by Tom M Apostol( Visual )

1 edition published in 1988 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After posing problems from real life than can be solved by using the Pythagorean theorem, the videotape provides a historical perspective together with several different animated proofs. The theorem is extended to three dimensions. A dramatic view of the earth shows why the theorem fails on the surface of a sphere
The Sahara : the forgotten history of the world's harshest desert( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 203 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This documentary brings to life the Sahara's cruel history and the conflicts that still plague its people. It recounts the story of kings who once led caravans of 30,000 people across the desert, bearing riches beyond imagination. It tells of Roman death squads that exterminated the citizens of the Empire's most bitter rival and how the Foreign Legion crafted a legend out of last stands and lost causes. From the fabled metropolis of Timbuktu to the shores of Tripoli, this film is an illuminating exploration of this unforgiving and remote land of myth and mirage. Also included is a bonus disc that examines the lives of two men -- T.E. Lawrence and Erwin Rommel -- who shaped the desert's modern history and were themselves forever changed by the Sahara
Transcontinental Railroad( Visual )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 164 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On a somber day in Gettysburg, Abraham Lincoln ended his famous address with a promise that the war-torn nation would someday be reborn. At the time of Lincoln's speech, the greatest symbol of that rebirth had already begun. Hailed as an engineering feat to rival the Egyptian pyramids, the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad was an engineering marvel as well as a technological nightmare. In the 1860s, the Union Pacific began laying tracks westward from Omaha, and the Central Pacific did the same heading eastward from Sacramento, hoping they would one day meet. Creeping along inch by grueling inch, work on the railroad represented the nation's struggle to forge an iron link between East and West, making cross-country travel faster and easier than ever
