Exploring the Link between Preservice Teachers' Conception of Proof and the Use of Dynamic Geometry Software.
Pandiscio, Eric A.
School Science and Mathematics, v102 n5 p216-21 May 2002
Reports on a case study investigating how secondary preservice mathematics teachers perceive the need for and the benefits of formal proof when given geometric tasks in the context of dynamic geometry software. Results indicate that preservice teachers are concerned that after using dynamic software, high school students will not see the need for proofs. (Author/MM)
