Providing the motivation to prove in a dynamic geometry environment
Mogetta, C., Olivero, F. and Jones, K. (1999) Providing the motivation to prove in a dynamic geometry environment. Proceedings of the British Society for Research into Learning Mathematics, 19, (2), 91-96.
The use of dynamic geometry software may provide opportunities to improve the teaching and learning of mathematical proof within the context of plane geometry. Yet, it seems, if the approach to proving continues to emphasise a standardised linear deductive presentation, little improvement in student conceptions may result. This paper considers the design of geometrical tasks that could provide the motivation to prove.
