Title: Teaching High School Mathematics; First Course; Prelude to Deduction
Description: Mathematician Max Beberman discusses that idea that if students accept the Communitive Principle for addition, then they must accept the mathematical consequences (instances) of the principle. He then demonstrates that each instance is a consequence, but not every consequence is an instance. When students acquire the concept of instance and consequence, they can begin to distinguish between deduction and experiment. This film is the students’ first experience with formal proofs. Black and white picture with sound. Eastman Kodak edge code reads "square triangle," which correlates to 1965.
