By Celia Hoyles and Keith Jones

Abstract

Proof lies at the heart of mathematics yet we know from research in mathematics education that proof is an elusive concept for many mathematics students. The question that we are now asking is whether the introduction of dynamic geometry systems will improve the situation – or will it make the transition from informal to formal proof in mathematics even harder? How far will innovative teaching approaches with computers assist pupils in developing a conceptual framework for proof and in appropriating proof as a means to illuminate geometrical ideas or will computer use be seen to replace any need for proof
