Title: Teaching High School Mathematics; First Course; Numbers and Numerals Part 2
Description: Mathematician Max Beberman teaches students from the Mathematics Institute how to introduce the concept of symbols and abbreviations for numbers. Instructor Herbert Wills initiates a 166-lesson course for secondary school students, using Beberman’s methods, with a class on numbers and numerals. Beberman elaborates on the lesson with examples of common mistakes pupils make when asked to name numbers and numerals and to use abbreviations and symbols for numerals in basic math lessons. Black and white picture with sound. Eastman Kodak edge code reads "square circle," which correlates to 1965.
