- Published 2001

Students’ conceptions of mathematical induction in a standard teaching approach were found to be largely manifestations of deficient proof schemes, such as the authoritative and the symbolic non-quantitative proof schemes. On the other hand, when a fundamentally different instructional treatment of mathematical induction was implemented in an elementary number theory course taught to prospective secondary teachers, students’ conception of mathematical induction developed as a transformational… CONTINUE READING
