Title: Teaching High School Mathematics; First Course; Logical Basis for Equation Transformation Principles Part I
Description: Mathematician Max Beberman discusses how to solve an equation when it must be simplified in order to create a more easily-solved root. Beberman introduces the Uniqueness Principle for Addition and its converse, the Cancellation Principle for Addition. These two principles form the Addition Transformation Principle. The students learn clear distinctions between a logical principle and a mathematical principle, and how to interpret conditional sentences. Black and white picture with sound. Eastman Kodak edge code reads "square circle," which correlates to 1965.
