    ask_tim_and_moby_small

    At the start of every movie Tim reads out a letter from a child which lets you know what the movie is going to answer. They are from kids or teachers from across the world.

    letter_at_the_start_of_a_brainpop_uk_movie

    All movie suggestions go into a queue where they are discussed and, if we think it’s a topic we want to explore or enough people ask for it, then we may go ahead and create it.

    Unfortunately Tim & Moby are very busy so can’t personally reply to your questions but we’re always interested in hearing your suggestions. So if you have a topic you’d like to see Tim & Moby explaining then please contact us.

      I LOVE your videos! Moby does seriously weirdly funny stuff to Tim, and himself (especially on the Introduction Movie where he was a female teacher). I come to your Website every time!

    • ChrisB Says:

      Thanks for the compliments. Moby has a weird sense of humour but he always makes us laugh! Poor old Tim.

    • Wylker Says:

      Dear Tim and Moby,
      My teacher is teaching us how to divide equivalent fractions.can you please tell me all about them ?

      From,Wylker

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Wylker!

      You certainly can find loads of our movies on the site. In fact, and this is up to the minute news, we’ve just doubled the number of Maths movies. We’ve run a search for you on BrainPOP UK on “divide equivalent fractions” and these are the movies that came back:

      http://www.brainpop.co.uk/search/results.weml?keyword=divide+equivalent+fraction

      So check out that link – we can personally recommend this one:

      Thanks,

    • Elle Simms Says:

      Oh and i have another question! Why do we get constipated when we eat certain foods?

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Elle,

      A good question. This article is a pretty good place to start: http://constipation.emedtv.com/constipation/foods-that-cause-constipation.html (this is not a BrainPOP site so it’s up to you if you follow their advice). We also have a really cool “Human Digestion” movie that you can find here: http://www.brainpop.co.uk/science/lifeprocessesanimalsandplants/digestivesystem/preview.weml

      Good luck!

      Tim & Moby

    • ChrisB Says:

      There’s lots you can learn on how to improve your writing. There are 2 major things you can do that will help improve your writing: 1) Read, read, read – as much as you can and 2) understand as best you can who your audience are. You can find loads of movies about writing in this subject page on BrainPOP UK: http://www.brainpop.co.uk/english/readingandwriting/

      And remember, writing should be huge amounts of fun so write about things you love! Have fun!

      How do you build a battery buggies?
      Some of the Science Olympiad teammates are competing
      in the Battery Buggy competition.
      Do you have any suggestions?

    • Veronica Archila Says:

      Dear Tim and Moby, how are cherrys form?

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi AJ,

      We hadn’t come across “Battery buggies” before but apparently they’re an old tradition that’s starting to come back into favour. Have a look at the “Battery buggy” wiki page here, which also gives you an introduction to constructing one:

      http://scioly.org/w/index.php?title=Battery_Buggy_B

      You could also check out our “Battery” and “Electricity” (which also tells you about the 3 parts of a circuit) movies.

      If you are entering this year’s Science Olympiad too we all wish you the best of luck!

      Tim & Moby

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Veronica,

      There’s a wonderful article here that tells you everything you could ever need to know about cherries: http://www.madehow.com/Volume-6/Cherries.html.

      If you want to know how cherries grow then go and check out this page from The Seed Site: http://theseedsite.co.uk/fruits.html. It tells us that the cherry is a “Drupe – a single fleshy fruit with a hard stone which contains the single seed.”

      We’d also suggest you watch our “Pollination” movie which tells you about the life cycle of seeds.

    • Juda Riedel Says:

      Dear Tim and Moby,

      What is an albino and what causes it?

      Regards,

      Judah

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Juda,

      Albinism is a genetic inheritence when the body can’t produce melanin pigment. Melanin helps protect the skin from ultraviolet light coming from the Sun. The more melanin you have in your skin the darker you are – so having no melanin means people with Albinism have very pale skin and white blonde hair. Melenin also forms part of the eye development, which is why Albinos can have eye problems from birth.

      Wikipedia has a good list of Albinism support groups.

      We’ve also got a movie on Genetics that you might be interested in taking a look at.

      Thanks for your question – we’ll add it to our list.

    • Edwina Says:

      Dear tim and moby,

      I have a question,How is hair made and why does it split? Hope no one chose that yet! And i hope ur website is proteced becaue ur always tellin us we should go on safe websites, but if your weebstie isnt safe, whats the point?

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Edwina,

      That’s a great question but we’ve got a “Hair” movie on the site already.

      Our website is safe to use. And yes you should always try to go to safe websites. We’re not sure what you mean by “safe” but if it’s viruses and things like that check out our “Virus” movie (and install and keep up to date a good anti virus protection program too!).

      If you mean safe for kids to use you have to use your best judgement or ask an adult. Have a look at our “Online safety” movie where we talk about how to keep safe when using the internet.

    • amber Says:

      dear tim and moby,

      how does moby talk like a person?

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Amber,

      Moby does not talk. Well, he kind of does…but only in the Beepish language, known only to robots. There is one movie where Moby talks. Go and watch the Etymology movie, it’s very funny: http://www.brainpop.co.uk/uk/english/knowledgeaboutlanguage/etymology/

      Tim & Moby

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Mel,

      We really hope not! Anxiety is a common and complex problem that can be attributed to any number of things and show up in a number of ways. The very simplest answer would be to speak to your parents or doctor as they will be best placed to support you.

      Thanks for your suggestion – we’ll definitely add it to our list as we like to help people understand complex topics.

      Dear Tim and Moby

      Can you tell me about Michael Jordan

      Thanks
      Judah
      P.S Can you create it on a movie

    • AnnC Says:

      Hi Judah,

      Michael Jordan is a retired professional basketball player. He is most famous for his time spent playing for the Chicago Bulls during the 1980s and 1990s. He was a very popular player and even had some trainers named after his “slam dunk” style, “Nike Air Jordans”.

      Jordan received many awards for his basketball achievements and is now listed in the Basketball Hall of Fame.

      He wasn’t only a basketball player though! He also played professional baseball for a brief period, starred in “Space Jam” alongside Bugs Bunny, and is now a businessman.

      We hope we’ve answered your question but if you’d like to learn more about him or his game stats, here’s what the NBA have to say about him, http://www.nba.com/history/players/jordan_summary.html.

      Thanks for the movie suggestion! We’ll definitely add it to our list.

      Dear Tim and Moby,

      Are there any bacteria or a germ
      that could eat your brain?
      my brother said that but i dont really know

      thanks,
      maria

    • AnnC Says:

      Hi Maria

      It sounds like your brother was trying to frighten you! To answer your question, bacteria and germs can’t literally “eat your brain”. However, there are many illnesses that can affect the human brain and make a person ill. It’s best to ask a parent or doctor if you have any questions about a specific illness or if anything’s worrying you.

      ps I’m reading the warrior cats kind

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Firestar,

      Did you know that Erin Hunter is not a real person? She’s actually a pen name for a group of authors Kate Cary, Cherith Baldry, and Tui Sutherland and the editor Victoria Holmes! We’ll definitely check out her books. We have lots of movies on famous authors such as Charles Dickens, Agatha Christie and Roald Dahl. But maybe, if Erin Hunter’s work inspires you you could look at trying to write your own fantasy stories. Watch our Reading and Writing movies to get started: http://www.brainpop.co.uk/english/readingandwriting/

      Thanks for your movie suggestion, Firestar, we’ll add it to the list.

      In the meantime, you learn lots of facts about Volcanoes by watching our Volcanoes movie where Tim and Moby will introduce you to the volcanoes of the world. You’ll discover the three types of volcano and learn why each one forms in different locations and under different conditions. You’ll also find why a volcanic eruption in one place can affect climates all over the world:

      Hi sydney,

      Wow, that’s a pretty serious question. We don’t have a movie on rabies. Luckily in the UK, rabies has been eliminated from the animal population and there hasn’t been a case of human rabies in this country since in 1902. If it’s your own pets you’re worried about we suggest you talk to your local vet to find out more.

      Tim & Moby

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Niki,

      It kind of depends what you want to know.

      We don’t have a movie about Alabama but we did find this official government site that has interesting facts about Alabama:

      Hi Katherine

      Thanks for the compliments! We work hard to help you learn. Now for your questions…

      Your liver plays an important role! It cleans our blood of toxins and helps digest food. Learn more about it from this helpful Kids Health webpage:
      http://kidshealth.org/PageManager.jsp?lic=1&article_set=54835&cat_id=20607

      Most animals who live in water are cold blooded, like fish or reptiles. Warm blooded mammals who spend a lot of time in water (like penguins or whales) have adapted to their environment with physical features like naturally waterproof feathers, a thick layer of blubber, or thick fur for insulation.

      Some movies you may want to watch to learn more about how animals adapt to their environment include any number from our Living Things in Their Environment sub-category:
      http://www.brainpop.co.uk/science/livingthingsintheirenvironment/

      Doctors specialise in many different areas. Our advice is to ask a parent or teacher if there is a specific illness you’d like to learn more about – they should be able to point you in the right direction.

      We hope that answers all of your questions.

      Best of luck on your learning journey and keep BrainPOPping!

      Hi Niki,

      There was a President called George Washington, but not a President called George Washington Carver. George Washington Carver was a scientist who rose to fame in the early part of the 20th century for, amongst other things, his pioneering work in the field of agriculture. He was an amazing man and you can get a picture of his life and work by watching the BrainPOP Jr movie: George Washington Carver (which is currently free so you don’t need to subscribe to watch it!).

      Thanks
      Tim & MOby

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Tiago,

      An “analogy” is basically another way to talk about a comparison or similarity. An “analogy” to “analogy” would be a metaphor or simile.

      Oh dear, this is all getting a bit complicated, isn’t it?

      We talk about all these things in our “Similies & Metphors” and “Dictionary & Thesaurus” movies. That should help you with your question.

      Thanks
      Tim & MOby

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Niki,

      To be honest your best bet is to talk to your Music teacher directly. They should be able to show you examples and help you understand how these notes are visually represented in the page. We agree that it looks really tricky.

      You might want to watch this Youtube movie called “How to read music” too, which might help.

      In the meantime we will go back and look at our movie list to see if your question can be added.

      The Egyptian empire began around 3000BC and continued until its absorbtion into the Roman Empire in about 31BC. One empire replaced another. They left an incredible legacy including arts, medicines, architecture, literature and mathmatics, which is still felt today.

      Hi emibear

      Newborn babies tend to emerge wet, red and screaming, and often with a whole host of other temporary features which you might not expect. Babies vary in colour when they are first born for reasons other than race and ethnic group. Their colour changes along with their environment and health. When they are first born, it is normal for babies to look red or even dark purple, and as they begin to breathe, they get paler. Most babies will be very pale or blue looking before they start to gain normal colouring.

      The reason they are a different colour when born is because they have been growing in their mother’s womb for 9 months and, when born, their body quickly adapts to the change in environment.

      Learn more about babies by watching the BrainPOP movie Infancy

      Thanks,

    • AnnC Says:

      Dear Maria

      The reason we use Maths or do anything in school is so we learn skills to help us in daily life and for the future. That’s also why we make BrainPOP movies about so many things – there’s just so much to learn and learning’s fun!

      You might be especially surprised to see how often we use Maths in daily life – just watch our Calculus movie for example.

      We like your suggestion about making a movie about School – we’ll add it to our list.

      Thanks,

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Jason,

      Well, what an interesting question! It’s more of a philosophical question than a logical one, so we’re not sure how we might make it into a movie. We’ve emailed John Lennox, a professor of Maths at Oxford University, to see if he can help. If he replies we’ll let you know!

      ps please make a movie

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi again Jason,

      We asked a Math philosopher to give us his answer to your question “why 1+1=2 but not 3 how do we know for certain”. This is what he said:

      “There are various ways of viewing mathematics and these boil down to whether you think mathematic laws exist outside of us (they are an objective fact) or whether you think they only exist within our minds.

      • Mathematical Realism: The idea that mathematical things exist outside of the brain and we can discover them (e.g. a square is real and can be seen). Plato took a similar line (mathematical ideas being abstract and unchanging), although this asks the question of where these mathematic ideas are and how we find them. Some would say that it only exists in our minds (in intuitism or the embodied mind theory).
      • Empericism: The idea that we can know about maths only by observation. We can see that if we have one item and we put another with it we then find we have two items. The problem with this approach, though, is that it suggests mathematics is based on observation like other areas (and therefore seems less objective).
      • Logicism: The idea that mathematics is part of logic.
      • Of course the numbers “1”,”2”,”3”, etc, are our own labels (and therefore the meaning has been devised by us – so any words could have been substituted), but mathematics is actually one of the few academics subjects where you can have proper “proofs” of something (albeit once you accept the initial parameters, methodology and terminology). So you can prove 1 + 1 = 2 in a way that you can’t “prove” that a particular historical event was caused by a certain factor. The law of non-contradiction, for example, shows us that 1+1 cannot equal 2 or 3 as only one (or none) can be true/correct.”

        What a wonderful answer (assuming you understood it). I hope this helps!

      Dear Tim and Moby, hi again can you tell me the history of the Catholic Church (and please make a video about it) thanks Joi

    • AnnC Says:

      Hi Joi

      The Temptations were a significantly influential soul and R&B group formed in the 1960s and they’re still around today. Well, only one of their original members – Otis Williams – is still in the group, but that’s a career spanning almost half a century – impressive! They were one of the most successful bands signed with Motown Records.

      The original line-up, or “the classic five”, included Melvin Franklin, Eddie Kendricks, Otis Williams, Paul Williams, and David Ruffin. David Ruffin sang lead vocals on one of our favourite Temptations songs, “My Girl”. Other famous groups and artists signed with Motown during the same era include the Four Tops and Marvin Gaye.

      You should ask your family to play some of The Temptations’ songs from the 1960s as they still sound great today.

      Hope we’ve answered your question and that you enjoy listening!

    • AnnC Says:

      Hi Andy

      Zombies are fictional monsters often known as the “living dead” – human corpses which have come back to life. It is often said that the zombies we see in modern day horror movies symbolise the breakdown of civilisation and society as we know it – pretty gruesome stuff! But, as zombies are fictional like vampires or werewolves, there’s no need to worry about them as they’re not real.

      You can learn more about symbolism and allegory in our Lord of the Flies movie and “In Depth” section of the FYI – http://www.brainpop.co.uk/english/readingandwriting/lordoftheflies/

      Hi J’Nai

      Unfortunately, we don’t have a movie about the Titanic but we’ve added it to our ever-growing list of movies to-do though as it’s an awesome suggestion!

      In brief, the RMS Titanic was the largest passenger steamship ever built but it has a very tragic story. On her maiden voyage from Southampton in the UK to New York in the US on 14th April 1912, the Titanic hit an iceberg. Over 1,000 passengers lost their lives when she sank. For more information, here are a couple of useful links:

      http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RMS_Titanic
      http://www.rmstitanic.net/
      http://www.titanicstory.com/

      There are also two famous Hollywood movies you could watch too:

      A Night to Remember (1958) is a classic – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0051994/
      Titanic (1997) won 11 Oscars – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0120338/

      A carcinogen is any substance or radiation that is directly involved in causing cancer. “Carcinogen” literally means “cancer-causing agent.” Tobacco smoke is a pretty common carcinogen. So are certain chemicals used in manufacturing.

      You can learn a little more about carcinogens by watching our Cancer movie here: http://www.brainpop.co.uk/psheandcitizenship/pshehealthandconditions/cancer/

      We’re really sorry, that sounds rotten! Teasing is a form of bullying. Being bullied and made fun of by other kids at school can be extremely upsetting, but in our Bullying movie, we show you how to deal with this very real problem. You’ll see how it’s possible to end cycle of being constantly picked on. Plus you’ll learn why telling a parent, teacher or school counsellor is nothing to be embarrassed about – in fact, it’s the only right thing to do!

      http://www.brainpop.co.uk/psheandcitizenship/pshekeepingsafe/bullying/

      Don’t ever think you’re alone. Let’s stand together and say, ‘Down with mean bullies!’

      Tim & Moby

    • AnnC Says:

      Hi Jaedyn

      A number line is a fantastic tool for learning addition and subtraction, especially when you’re learning how to add or subtract negative numbers. We talk about number lines in our Adding and Subtracting Integers movie:

      http://www.brainpop.co.uk/maths/numberandcalculation/addingandsubtractingintegers/

      That should hopefully set you on your way! And, if you get stuck, don’t be afraid to ask a parent or teacher for help too.

      Make sure to pause the movie so you’ve got time to take notes. If you get stuck, as a teacher or parent to help.

      Happy BrainPOPping!

    • AnnC Says:

      Hi Daniela

      Sorry for the late reply. Easter Eggs are often given as gifts for the Christian religious festival of Easter. They are often made of yummy chocolate and it’s a tradition in the UK to hide them around the house or garden on Easter Sunday for kids to seek them out. We also enjoy decorating hard boiled eggs all sorts of colours and patterns. Some people enjoy rolling them down a hill after they’ve decorated them!

      The Easter egg, for Christians, is a reminder that Jesus rose from the grave and is a symbol of Christ’s resurrection. You can learn more about symbolism by watching our Lord of the Flies movie: http://www.brainpop.co.uk/english/readingandwriting/lordoftheflies/

      Hope that answers your question!

      Tim & Moby

      We also like Mermaids! We’ll add your suggestion to our very long movies to-do list.

      Dear Tim and Moby,

      Can you make a movie about the difference between a credit card and a debit card?

      From Mimi

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Mimi,

      Thanks for your question – it’s a good one. Essentially when you use a credit card you are borrowing money that you need to pay back. When you use a debit card you are using money you already have. They look really similar though.

      You should check out our “Credit Cards” topic for more. It’s a more interesting subject than it might seem!

      http://www.brainpop.co.uk/uk/psheandcitizenship/pshefinancial/creditcards/

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Mimi,

      A sim card is small card you put inside a mobile phone, which has a unique identification number personal to you that allows your phone to connect to the network. Bear in mind, if you take it out the phone won’t work!

      Watch our Mobile phones movie to learn more.

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Kelly,

      Thanks for your question! That’s a huge and really interesting historical topic to tackle so it’s been sent to our Editorial team who will look into making a movie about it.

    • ChrisB Says:

      Hi Marcus,

      The best place to learn more about Santa (and why he delivers presents to children) is to watch our Winter Holidays movie http://www.brainpop.co.uk/humanities/religionsocietyandethics/winterholidays/ , then select the “FYI” section and go to the “Famous Faces” tab. That’s where you’ll read all about the history of Father Christmas.
