Engendering Proof Attitudes: Can the Genesis of Mathematical Knowledge Teach Us Anything?
Almeida, Dennis
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v34 n4 p479-88 Jul-Aug 2003
Suggests that there is continued poverty in student understanding of proof. Reports on how proof attitudes could be inculcated in students by offering them a course design that is somewhat faithful to the historical genesis of modern mathematics. Contends that such a design can enable students to discover a sense of proof for themselves. (Contains 21 references.) (Author/NB)
