Teaching Mathematical Induction: An Alternative Approach.
Allen, Lucas G.
Mathematics Teacher, v94 n6 p500-04 Sep 2001
Describes experience using a new approach to teaching induction that was developed by the Mathematical Methods in High School Project. The basic idea behind the new approach is to use induction to prove that two formulas, one in recursive form and the other in a closed or explicit form, will always agree for whole numbers. (KHR)
