A proof can be described in simple terms as a network of claims and connectives sequenced in a promising way so as to justify the conclusion of a logical statement or sequence of premises. In Mathematics ‘proving’ is the activity of creating a reasoning process to build up a substantiated argument. The difficulty one finds in ‘proofs’ is the evaluation of the proof and writing a deductive one. Several studies have revealed that when asked to prove the correctness of the proof most students turn to object examples for the result. They find it easier to explain with examples rather than complex equations and theorems. Of course it goes without saying that the examples should be in compliance with accepted Mathematical principles, definitions, properties, theorems etc.
Here at MathsOne we ensure that the idea of learning proofs is made easy and is prolifically taught that the students can come up with their own examples for each.
