Hanna and M. de Villiers (eds.), Proof and Proving in Mathematics Education, New ICMI Study Series 15, DOI 10.1007/978-94-007-2129-6_9, © Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2012 We will organise our discussion of the need for proof and proving around three main questions: Why teach proof? What are (or may be) learners’ needs for proof? How can teachers facilitate the need for proof? First, we examine the close connection between the functions of proof within mathematics and the needs those… CONTINUE READING
