Films in the Mathematics Classroom.
Bestgen, Barbara J.; Reys, Robert E.
This document is designed to help teachers become aware of available mathematics films and use them effectively in teaching mathematics. The five main sections cover: (1) Are Mathematics Films Used in Mathematics Classes; (2) Why Use Films in a Mathematics Class; (3) How Should Films be Used; (4) What Mathematics Films Are Currently Available in the United States and Canada; and (5) Where Are Film Procedures and Distributors Located. It is noted that, in general, very few films are used in mathematics classes. The most frequently cited reason for lack of use is that teachers indicate that they do not know what exists. This work contains candid reviews and ratings from classroom teachers and explicit suggestions for planning, previewing, and integrating films into the instructional program. More than 200 mathematics films are listed alphabetically by title. An index is supplied, classifying films under key mathematical topics. (MP)
