Data versus Conjectures in Mathematical Problem Solving.
Nunokawa, Kazuhiko
Focus on Learning Problems in Mathematics, v19 n1 p1-19 Win 1997
Analyzes the problem-solving process and presents the dominance of the conjecture or theoretical aspect as a subtle relation between the data and the conjecture. Argues that conjectures are not necessarily subordinate to the data but play active roles in mathematical problem solving. Discusses the meaning of this dominance in the context of philosophy. Contains 34 references. (JRH)
