Branches of Government
 
02:30
If our government were a tree, it would be a sad one—only three branches. The three branches of the government look like this: judicial, legislative, and executive. The executive branch includes the president and his administration; the judicial includes the Supreme Court and the federal court system; the legislative branch makes laws and includes the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Mean, Median, and Mode
 
01:58
Mean, Median, Mode, the 3 M's. These "M"s are all into sets of numbers, but usually they like different numbers within the sets. On occasion, they like the same number (That's where things get messy). Luckily for you, you can easily tell which number each one will like so you can write it down before things get confusing.

The Golden Ratio
 
02:12
Even if you may not realize it, there is a particular proportion that runs rampant, popping up nearly everywhere you look. Unless you’re currently inside a lumberyard with many long, thin planks of wood, in which case... you can disregard.

Math Basics: Graph Points
 
01:50
Graphing points is just counting squares left and right, or up and down. If we never put any points on our graphs, they'd really just be "grids." And "grids" make us think of "gridlock," which makes us think of "traffic." So... graph points help reduce traffic. Holla.
