A Framework for Describing the Processes that Undergraduates Use to Construct Proofs
Weber, Keith

The purpose of this paper is to offer a framework for categorizing and describing the different types of processes that undergraduates use to construct proofs. Based on 176 observations of undergraduates constructing proofs collected over several studies, I describe three qualitatively different ways that undergraduates use to construct proofs. In the concluding section, I describe the learning that is likely to occur by writing proofs in each of these three ways. [For complete proceedings, see ED489597.]
