The Concept of Exponetiation at the Undergraduate Level and the Definitional Approach
Vinner, Shlomo
Educational Studies in Mathematics, 8, 1, 17-26, Apr 77
The author argues that undergraduates, and especially those not planning to pursue mathematics, are not ready for a definitional approach to mathematics. He interprets data on student attribution of five terms (theorem, law, fact about numbers, definition, axiom) to definitions in support of his argument. (SD)
