http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=899620
'Reflections, NCTM's video-based, professional development Web site, is designed to help teachers — individually and collectively — examine their teaching of mathematics. The site’s components are designed to assist teachers in reflecting on the mathematics they teach, and as a tool to systematically observe, analyze, critique, and improve classroom practices. Reflections focuses on algebra in grades 3-8.Whether the site is approached through the six individual lessons or the five across-lesson topics, the heart of Reflections is a set of Critical Teaching Questions. For example:How effectively does the teacher determine when to clarify, explain, question or let a student struggle?What are the mathematical ideas in this lesson and how significant are they?When selected, each Critical Teaching Question provides you with a set of video clips from the lesson and from pre- and post-lesson discussions, with accompanying on-screen transcripts, and a set of reflective tasks and analyses that foster individual or collaborative reflection and analysis of the lesson, the mathematics taught, the pedagogy employed and the learning that occurred.'Pi

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=899275
Topology is generally considered to be one of the three linchpins of modern abstract mathematics (along with analysis and algebra). Recently, topology has an important components of applied mathematics, with many mathematicians and scientists employing concepts of topology to model and understand real-world structures and phenomena. Topology is the study of shapes:Including their properties, Deformations applied to them, Mappings between them and Configurations composed of them. Here we can learn this course with the help of provided study materialFibonature - The Fibonacci Sequence in Nature
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=898895
The Fibonacci sequence a set of numbers that is formed by adding the two previous numbers. Thus, the sequence is 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21 etc. The golden ratio is the ratio between any 2 adjacent numbers in the sequence, which approaches 1.618 as you go further down the sequence. Nature has found the Fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio to be the most efficient ways to grow and form itself; this concept is called the path of least resistance. Because of this path of least resistance, the Fibonacci sequence and the golden ratio can be found throughout many forms of nature, such as pinecones, succulents, and nautilus shells.Young Math Wizards: Topology
