Preformal proving: examples and reflections
The starting point of our reflections is a classroom situation in grade 12 in which it was to be proved intuitively that non-trivial solutions of the differential equation f' = f have no zeros. We give a working definition of the concept of preformal proving, as well as three examples of preformal proofs. Then we furnish several such proofs of the aforesaid fact, and we analyse these proofs in detail. Finally, we draw some conclusions for mathematics in school and in teacher training.
Applied mathematical problem solving, modelling, applications, and links to other subjects
The paper will consist of three parts. In part I we shall present some background considerations which are necessary as a basis for what follows. We shall try to clarify some basic concepts and notions, and we shall collect the most important arguments (and related goals) in favour of problem solving, modelling and applications to other subjects in mathematics instruction. In the main part II we shall review the present state, recent trends, and prospective lines of development, both in empirical or theoretical ...
Applications and modelling in mathematics teaching
The aim of this paper is a comprehensive presentation of some important basic and general aspects of the topic applications and modelling, with emphasis on the secondary school level. Owing to the review character of this paper, some overlap with the survey paper Blum and Niss (1989) for ICME-6 in Budapest is inevitable. The paper will consist of three parts. In part 1, I shall try to clarify some basic concepts and remind the reader of a few application and modelling examples suitable for teaching. In part ...
