Following Children’s Ideas in Mathematics is an unprecedented long-term study conducted by researchers at Rutgers University followed the development of mathematical thinking in a randomly selected group of students for 12 years – from 1st grade through high school – with surprising results.
In this session, Are you convinced?, we explore the concept of PROOF. Proof making is one of the key ideas in mathematics. Looking at teachers and students grappling with the same problem, we see how two kinds of proof – proof by case and proof by induction – naturally grow out of the need to justify and convince others.
