The False Coin Problem, Mathematical Induction and Knowledge Fragility.
Movshovitz-Hadar, Nitsa
Journal of Mathematical Behavior, v12 n3 p253-68 Sep 1993
Shows fragility of knowledge in connection with a false application of mathematical induction, as observed in a problem-solving course for prospective teachers. The attempt to explain the observations is based upon an analysis of the logic underlying proof by mathematical induction and a concept formation theory. (MKR)
