Url: http://www.atetv.org/watch-videos/episode.aspx?e=1617
Publisher: Advanced Technological Education Television (ATETV)
Description: The ATETV project delivers web-based videos to connect students to careers in advanced technology. In this episode of ATETV, lasers and photonics technology, wind energy technology and the importance of mathematics are discussed. Technology being taught at community colleges, such as laser and photonics technologies, is in high demand in industry. Technological education relies heavily on math skills. Community colleges provide remedial math courses to help students improve their skills before moving on to more difficult applications of mathematics. The episode can be watched in full or through the three segments: "Shedding Light on Lasers," "Wind Power: A Growing Energy Source," and "It All Comes Back to Math." Running time for the full episode is 9:18.
