At your leisure, search for movie scenes that can be used to apply and enhance your lesson objective.

Matching film clips or Youtube video clips with your lessons may take some time, especially if you are looking for a great and exciting scenes.

Find meaningful and relevant visual images to the lesson plan.

Lessons must be intriguing, inspiring, and educational.

Math may be the most tedious subject for non-math majors.
