The Role of Proof in Mathematics Education.
Markel, William D.
School Science and Mathematics, v94 n6 p291-95 Oct 1994
Discusses how a teacher might bridge the gap between the professional mathematician (and finished mathematics) and the learner who sees only a small part of mathematics. Includes suggestions about basic rules of inference and a few elementary examples of simple proofs using these rules. (Author/MKR)
