Summary:Demonstrates the way a full orchestra score can be reduced to a piano version; the way in which children counting and the use of logarithms provide mathematical examples of modeling and extends these ideas to arrive at the definition of morphism. The breakdown of the method for the sine function with addition leads to the construction of the compatibility test and finally indicates the way in which morphism are useful in management situations. This film has been digitized because it has a high level of Vinegar Syndrome (chemical deterioration). That condition will prevent any captured images from being 100% perfect. Our goal is to present the content of the film in a digital format that is as good and the least distracting as possible.
