Proof in the Western and Eastern Traditions: implications for Mathematics Education. In Hanna, G & Villiers, MD (Eds.), Proof and proving in mathematics education: the 19th ICMI study, p. 431-440. Netherlands: Springer Netherlands, 2012 How to Cite?
AbstractAs one of the three panellists on the topic of proof within the Western and the Eastern cultural traditions, the author focuses on the ‘algorithmic’ and ‘dialectic’ aspects of doing mathematics with some illustrative examples taken from both the Western and Eastern worlds. The author argues that both mathematical traditions incorporate and use both aspects in constructing proofs.
