Title: Teaching High School Mathematics; First Course; Verbalizing Generalizations in the Classroom
Description: Mathematician Max Beberman teaches students name principles and provides instances to justify shortcuts in arithmetic computations. Beberman emphasizes that a student can use a generalization without having heard it spoken or seen it in print, and he can apply the generalization to solve problems. But, he cannot test his intuitive insight by a deductive proof without first supplementing the insight with a precise linguistic formulation. Also, until he achieves this formulation, the student cannot use an insight as an assumption from which to derive new generalizations. Black and white picture with sound. Kodak edge code reads "square triangle," which correlates to 1965.
