Title: Teaching High School Mathematics; First Course; Equivalent Equations: Developing the Concept
Description: Mathematician Max Beberman and his students find different names for the same set of numbers. In one lesson, the class addresses the question: what happens when the problem changes from recognizing descriptions of the same set to recognizing equations with the same roots? In the final twelve minutes of the same class, Beberman focuses on the equation sentences rather than the solution sets. This film is a precursor to solving easier, equivalent equation with the same roots. Black and white picture with sound. Eastman Kodak edge code reads "triangle square," which correlates to 1964.
