There is international recognition of the importance of reasoning and proof in students’ learning of mathematics at all levels of education, and of the difficulties met by students and teachers in this area. Indeed, many students face difficulties with reasoning about mathematical ideas and constructing or understanding mathematical arguments that meet the standard of proof. Teachers also face difficulties with reasoning and proof, and existing curriculum materials tend to offer inadequate… CONTINUE READING
