Rethinking Proof offers other motivations for proof besides verification, including explanation, discovery, challenge, and systemization. In the activities, students work with SketchpadTM sketches to make conjectures. Carefully constructed questions guide students to develop explanations of why their conjectures are true. Comes with extensive teachers notes, and includes a CD-ROM* containing pre-made Sketchpad sketches.
