The Futures Channel has the motto "*Connecting learning to the real world*".

There is a series of videos covering real-world applications of math and science topics such as:

- algebra
- mathematics
- problem solving
- science & technology

Under the "problem solving" heading, I found this overview on the math behind building bass guitars.

[This is a Flash video and probably will not play on your mobile device.]

The Futures Channel also has video resources categorized under the following headings:

- animals
- art & music
- business & commerce
- design & architecture
- environment
