Thinking about proof

Thinking about proof
Thinking about proof
In Spring 2022 we conducted the ‘Mathematics in Transit’ project. In this
project a team of teachers and researchers from post-16 schools, the
Southampton Education School and the School of Mathematics, explored
curriculum materials to find the topic that would be most helped with a
supporting booklet. The most useful topic was ‘proof’. This booklet is aimed at
students interested in learning more about proof and different types of proof.
In this booklet, we go through what is a proof, how to construct a proof, and
different types/methods of proof.

Abstract

In Spring 2022 we conducted the ‘Mathematics in Transit’ project. In this
project a team of teachers and researchers from post-16 schools, the
Southampton Education School and the School of Mathematics, explored
curriculum materials to find the topic that would be most helped with a
supporting booklet. The most useful topic was ‘proof’. This booklet is aimed at
students interested in learning more about proof and different types of proof.
In this booklet, we go through what is a proof, how to construct a proof, and
different types/methods of proof.
