  1. FYI, the first video does not play, I tried it on Chrome and IE. Luckily I found it on youtube and I can see the start and end times you selected, but it would be nice to fix that first video. The last one works so I know it’s not a browser problem. Thanks!

  2. I was look for 3-Act tasks for a basketball centered math night and this was perfect thanks for sharing. Also, it appears that the Act 1 video is no longer available.
