Title: Teaching High School Mathematics; First Course; Principles and Discovery in Algebraic Manipulation Part IV: Some Common Cases
Description: Mathematician Max Beberman shows high school students methods and shortcuts to simplify equations and equivalency tests. The students learn how to simplify equations that contain fractions and expressions that include radical signs, and how to remove parentheses preceded by a minus sign. In addition, Beberman teaches them how to find the roots of complex equations and to construct theorems based on the findings. Black and white picture with sound. Eastman Kodak edge code reads "square triangle," which correlates to 1965.
