Title: Teaching High School Mathematics; First Course; Basic Principles for Real Numbers Part 3
Description: Max Beberman leads students on an investigation to find and prove various mathematical principles, including the Communitive Principle for Multiplication of Real Numbers, the Associative Property for Addition of Real Numbers, the Communitive Principles for Addition of Real Numbers, and the Principle for Adding the Real Number Zero. The students learn to check their findings and develop a working acquaintance with all of the principles. They also begin to use letters as variables to indicate patterns and to generate terms and sentences. In addition, Beberman introduces the pupils to using letters as indices to modify a sentence to indicate generalizations, which is discussed in future films. Black and white picture with sound. Eastman Kodak edge code reads "square triangle," which correlates to 1965.
