1. ### Edison: Boyhood and Teen Years

• Resource ID: PBS401

Find out how young Thomas Edison’s curiosity got him into trouble, and how, during his teen years, he lost his hearing but gained confidence as an aspiring inventor, in this video adapted from AMERICAN EXPERIENCE: Edison.

2. ### Applying the Order of Operations

• Resource ID: M6M1L1
