Topic Study Group 14 (TSG 14) for ICME-12:
Reasoning, proof and proving in mathematics
education

The TSG 31 organizing committee is co-chaired by
Team chairs: Maria Alessandra Mariotti (Italy),
Stéphane Cyr (Canada) with team members Andreas
Stylianides (UK), Viviane Durand-Guerrier
(France), Youngmee Koh (Korea), Kirsti Hemmi
(Sweden)

According to the topics addressed by the papers
accepted we identified four main themes to which
each paper and poster may be related.

Theme 1 : Conception of proof from different theoretical perspective
Theme 2: Proof in the classroom: the role of the teacher.
Theme 3: Evaluation of proofs
Theme 4: Curriculum and materials

Each of the four 90-minute sessions (July 10, 11,
13, and 14) will be devoted to one of these
themes. Part of the time will be devoted to a
short presentation of the papers and part of the
time will be devoted to a general discussion on
the main points emerging from the presentations.

The structure for each 90-minute session will
include some brief opening remarks by the
co-chairs of the committee, followed by the
presentations, 10-minutes for long presentation
and 5 minutes for short presentations.

At the conclusion of each session, the TSG 14 the
co-chairs will make some brief closing remarks.
The following timetable for TSG 14 provides details on the schedule.
