Title: Teaching High School Mathematics; First Course; Punctuation and Conventions in Mathematics Part 2: Conventions
Description: Mathematician Max Beberman expands on the idea of conventions for order of operations in order to remove punctuation without introducing ambiguity, which he explored in the last film (Punctuation and Conventions in Mathematics, Part I; e_mb_000). These conventions include left to right convention, multiplication first - addition second convention, and division first - subtraction second convention. Black and white picture with sound. Eastman Kodak edge code reads square circle which correlates to 1965.
