Let's Draw a Picture
Herrera, Christine A.; McCabe, Terrance; Strictland, Sharon; White, Alexander
PRIMUS, v28 n1 p46-56 2018
In an undergraduate analysis course taught by one of the authors, three prompts are regularly given: (i) What do we know? (ii) What do we need to show? (iii) Let's draw a picture. We focus on the third prompt and its role in helping students develop their confidence in learning how to construct proofs. Specific examples of visual models and their impact on student work are presented.
