The Potential of Statement-Posing Tasks
Yang, Kai-Lin
For the Learning of Mathematics, v30 n2 p22-23 2010
This communication aims at revealing the potential of statement-posing tasks to facilitate students' thinking and strategies of understanding proof. Besides outlining the background of statement-posing tasks, four points were advanced as potential benefits of the tasks: (1) focusing on the logic of arguments in addition to the meaning of arguments, (2) a way to understand the logical function of proof methods, (3) facilitating dialectical reading strategies and (4) a generic example of reading tasks.
