Friday, April 19, 2013: 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
Mile High 4 A/B (Convention Center)
Lead Speaker:
Christine P Trinter
Joe Garofalo and Barbara Kitchell

Spice up your middle or high school class with this collection of existence proofs. We will share tasks to challenge your students to think about propositions that can be proved with one example. To address the appropriateness of each proof strategy, we will compare these tasks with propositions that cannot be proven by example.

Presentation Format: 9-12 Session
