Analogical Reasoning in Geometry Education
Magdas, Ioana
Acta Didactica Napocensia, v8 n1 p57-65 2015
The analogical reasoning isn't used only in mathematics but also in everyday life. In this article we approach the analogical reasoning in Geometry Education. The novelty of this article is a classification of geometrical analogies by reasoning type and their exemplification. Our classification includes: analogies for understanding and setting a geometrical concept, analogical concepts, analogical theorems and properties, analogies inside a problem, solving problems through analogy with a basic theorem or with a general method and mathematical results formulated by observing analogies.
