Title: | Teaching High School Mathematics; First Course; Subset of a Set: Developing the Concept |

Description: | Mathematician Max Beberman teaches students that they can solve some equations simply by inspection, but some are more complex. Easier problems must be solved first. He introduces the idea that if you prove that equation 1 is equal to equation 2 and equation 2 is equal to equation 3, then 1 and 3 are in the same solution set. Students are given homework to select equations that will have the same solution set. Black and white picture with sound. Eastman Kodak edge code reads "triangle square," which correlates to 1965. |
