Video Transcript: Algebra Applications: Data Analysis 
This is the transcript for the video of same title. Video contents: In this episode of Algebra Applications, students explore the dramatic events of 2008 related to the mortgage crisis. Brought about principally through mortgage defaults, the effect on the overall economy was severe. Yet, this situation offers an ideal case study for the exploration of key concepts in data analysis and probability. By exploring these questions students get a front row seat to the historical events of the world's largest economy.
