Student-Created Definitions of Sequence Convergence: A Case Study
Fisher, Brian
PRIMUS, v26 n8 p770-787 2016
This paper describes the development of an instructional sequence designed to allow students to reinvent the definition of sequence convergence in an introductory proof course. The sequence follows a heuristic of guided reinvention that encourages students to independently create their own mathematical definitions. This case study reports on how the challenges faced by one group of students informed a redesign of the curriculum and how a second group of students responded to the curricular revisions.
