On Mathematical Warrants: Proof Does Not Always Warrant, and a Warrant May Be Other Than a Proof.
Rodd, M. M.
Mathematical Thinking and Learning, v2 n3 p221-44 2000
Interprets the philosophical concept of warrant in a mathematics education context and applies it to two central questions: (1) in what sense does mathematical proof warrant?; and (2) can there be warrants for mathematical knowledge other then deductive proofs? (Contains 36 references.) (Author/ASK)
