"By using pebbles, blocks, rods, colored lines and tables to learn mathematics, teachers help students extract patterns and relationships and systems. Shows how students master computation much earlier than usual. Examples include a boy who first proves to himself that "nine fours is thirty-seven", only to change his mind after recess; and some 5th graders who multiply together two four-figure numbers in their heads, writing down only the answer."

After Friday

"Just how much can one man take?" [SFU 74/75 Film Workshop Showcase program]; "I can’t quite pinpoint why but this film felt stiff and nervous – part of it was some rather stilted acting from Richard Ouzounian – with lots of long pauses. There was some good photography. The opening scenes of the film were very effective – black and white still shots showing the brother as he is released from prison are interspersed with quick color cuts of the former inmate going into an arcade. There is also a fairly well paced chase scene, as an unknown gunman pursues a janitor via ancient elevators. The movie attempts to show the build up of fears which culminate in the madness and defeat of the inmate’s business man brother – but doesn’t quite succeed because of the inadequacy of the acting, trite dialogue and awkward scenes."

"(15 minutes) 16mm colour comdey, educational film. ‘Ah love … ’ (sigh) … A wildly funny look at sex education which can sneakily conspire to involve anyone who dares tackle it!" [1977/78 SFU Film Workshop Productions program]
