King, Irvin L.
Investigated was the feasibility of presenting proof materials to college-capable sixth-grade students. A unit on mathematical proof was developed using an iterative procedure. Formative evaluation procedures were used to improve various components of the unit. Included in the unit are terminal student behaviors, cartoon stories, and several classroom activities which use a desk computer. Results indicated that the iterative developmental procedures employed were highly successful. (Author/FL)
