Title: Teaching High School Mathematics; First Course; Punctuation and Conventions in Mathematics Part 1: Punctuation
Description: Mathematician Max Beberman explores various mathematical expressions that have become ambiguous from inadequate mathematical punctuation. He introduces the idea of rules for order of operations in order to remove punctuation without introducing ambiguity. These conventions are discussed further in the next film within this series: Punctuation and Conventions in Mathematics Part II: Conventions [e_mb_0008]. Black and white picture with sound. Eastman Kodak edge code reads "square circle," which correlates to 1964.
