series deals with the economic history of the United States. Teaching
guides and other materials are provided with these tapes.
Part I - Land
From the conquest of the wilderness to modern agribusiness, "Land" traces
facts and factors behind the growth of our nation.
Part II - People
Examining the challenges inherent in this vast land, "People" highlights
many of the factors that welded the American people into a "human resource."
Part III - Innovation
This country's investors were ignorant of the rules that bound other cultures
to accepted ways of doing things. With no dogma to adhere to, Americans
dreamed up their own ways - better ways.
Part IV - Organization
( 28:25 minutes).
Do it. Quick and right. It seems Americans have an inborn talent
for getting things done. Somehow the U. S. has always managed to
organize the things we make, resources we take from the earth and talents
we discover and develop.
Part V - Government
Today government is our largest employer, spender, borrower and lender.
It is a massive and influential enterprise. How did it happen and
just what is the proper role of government.

Challenge of the Unknown- 7 segments - 2 hours 24 minutes;
talks about mathematics and problem solving. Teaching guides and
other materials are provided with this series.
Part I - Situation
Where am I? The first step in problem solving is to tease the problem
out of the surrounding "landscape."
Part II - Information
What do I know? Information is the raw material of problem solving.
Sorting through the data you have can help you determine what's relevant
and what's missing.
Part III - Restatement
How do I see it? To get a problem ready for solution, it helps to
Part IV - Outcomes
How do I get there? Many problem have an obvious solution.
You what result you want from the beginning. The challenge is to
figure out how to get there.
Part V - Management
What do I do next? Some of life's problems are too large and complex,
or too subtle, to yield to a formal assault.
Part VI - Estimation
Am I close? You can't always nail down a precise answer. In
many cases, a rough answer, an education guess, is good enough.
Part VII - Argument
Am I right? Even when you've found a solution to a problem, it pays
to ask is this the best solution or the best path to a solution?
Challenging results reinforce what has been learned.

guides and other materials are provided with this series.
Part I - Evidence
Before a problem can be solved, one needs information or evidence.
Evidence must be gathered, tested and retested and then interpreted.
Part II - Patterns
Form follows purpose. Patterns develop and the ability to discern
patterns and to organize and reorganize the framework of vision and evidence
Part III - Investigation
Investigation is a systematic approach tot he world of observable facts.
Each child discovered the world by investigation - tasting, listening,
etc., - until the world became generalizations and categories of objects
Part IV - Trial
and Error (18:50 minutes).
Trial and error is as basic as learning itself and errors are essential
the process. It requires the problem solvers to be able to organize
and direct a plan of attack.
Part V - Context
To see an object within its framework means to see it in context.
It is the goal of all problem-solving to train the powers of observation.
Part VI - Adaptation
Solving problems by borrowing the solution from the problem is adaptation.
Feedback is a systematic repetition of the adaptation process in situations
where the problem and solution are in a continually changing relationship.
Part VII - Modeling
A model is a abstract description of the real world, a simple representation
of complex forms, processes and functions of phenomena or ideas.
Models reduce risk, cost and complexity to manageable scales.
Part VIII - Prediction
It is the purpose of science to describe the world in an orderly scheme
or language that will enable us to look ahead. Prediction is a search
for laws on which to base a forecast.
Part IX - Theory
The universal human need to tell stories, to explain what has happened
and what structures the universe and the individual's experience, is the
foundation of theory making.
