Participants will evaluate sample arguments for the Sticky Gum Problem, accessible to middle grades through college-level learners and focused on reasoning/proof. From our evaluations, we will develop criteria for what counts as proof, and we will discuss how to facilitate a similar experience with students. Sean Yee will also facilitate the session.
