Teaching the Proof Process: A Model for Discovery Learning.
Dean, Euda E.
College Teaching, v44 n2 p52-55 Spr 1996
A model for teaching proof writing to college mathematics students is presented. The model has six phases: (1) open (understanding the theorem by reading it, listing, and writing it out); (2) brainstorm; (3) instantiate (perception of the chain of inferences linking hypothesis to conclusion); (4) convince; (5) reflect; and (6) extend. Strategies for teaching are also offered. (MSE)
