Title: Teaching High School Mathematics; First Course; Solving Equations: Informal Approach
Description: Mathematician Max Beberman discusses the process of helping pupils to find solution set sentences and solve equations with a class from the Mathematics Institute. He suggests they make a game of finding solutions to open sentences so that students may understand the process of solving equations. Teaching students to use the natural discovery process to solve equation sequences is the reason Max Beberman created this film course. Mathematician Eleanor McCoy demonstrates Beberman’s method when she leads a class in solving equations. Black and white picture with sound. Eastman Kodak edge code reads "circle triangle," which correlates to 1963.
