Connecting Research to Teaching: Geometry and Proof
Mathematics Teacher Volume 88, Number 1, ISSN 0025-5769
Examines research relevant to the debate about the relative emphasis that formal proof should play in high school geometry. Discussion includes establishing truth in geometry, research in students' learning of proof, developing the notion of proof, alternatives to axiomatic approaches, computer construction programs, and classroom recommendations.
