Second International GeoGebra Conference, 29-31 August 2011, Hagenberg, Austria 

 

Working Group: Reasoning-and-proving

Group Leader: Gabriel Stylianides, University of Oxford, UK
Anders Sanne ,The Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Norway

 

Abstract

 

Reasoning-and-proving is a hyphenated term that describes a family of activities involved in investigations of whether and why “things work” in mathematics, notably generalizing (identifying patterns, making conjectures) and justifying (developing arguments and proofs).  In this working group we will discuss research and practice that explored GeoGebra’s use or role related to any of the aforementioned activities.   The working group discussions will be organized around themes that are of interest to the participants.  A preliminary list of themes includes the following, all in the context of GeoGebra:

 

1. International developments regarding the teaching and learning of reasoning-and-proving;

2. The teaching and learning of reasoning-and-proving at the primary, secondary, or university levels (including teacher education and professional development);

3. Students’ understanding of, and attitudes towards, reasoning-and-proving;

4. Teacher knowledge, beliefs, attitudes, and practices related to reasoning-and-proving;

5. Reasoning-and-proving in assessment; and

6. Directions for future research and further software development in the area of reasoning-and-proving.
