Abstract

Computers provide an environment in which mathematicians can experiment. The webpage linked to this discussion paper provides some examples of that, with the aim to provoke discussion about the need for proof and the conjectural nature of experimental mathematics, and the implications that would come from classroom sessions in experimental mathematics. The relevance for the study of the psychology of mathematics education is the possibility to record and analyse the creative and social aspects of students and teachers in their engagement with unsolved mathematical problems
