Title: Teaching High School Mathematics; First Course; Real Numbers: Developing the Concept
Description: In this film, Max Beberman focuses on real numbers. He discusses the concept with a class of schoolchildren, first explaining the differences between basic numbers of arithmetic and real numbers, and then tying the idea of positive and negative directionality to real numbers and to zero. Beberman also addresses the topic with students from the Mathematics Institute. Black and white picture with sound. Eastman Kodak edge code reads "square circle," which correlates to 1965.
