Bridging the Gap between Mathematical Conjecture and Proof through Computer-Supported Cognitive Conflicts
Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA Vol. 27, No. 1 (2008) pp. 1–10
In many mathematical problems, students can feel that the universality of a conjecture or a formula is validated by their experiment and experience. In contrast, students generally do not feel that deductive explanations strengthen their conviction...
A computer game as a context for non-routine mathematical problem solving: The effects of type of question prompt and level of prior knowledge
Computers & Education Vol. 52, No. 3 (April 2009) pp. 530–542
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of type of question prompt and level of prior knowledge on non-routine mathematical problem solving. A computer game was blended within the pattern reasoning tasks, along with question prompts,...
