Creating an on-RAMP into mathematical proving Creating an on-RAMP into mathematical proving This project proposes to develop an undergraduate Introduction to a Proof curriculum built around three novel proofreading activities (in addition to more standard proof production activities): (1) Engage students in Comparing Proofs as a means of abstracting logical structure and proof techniques; (2) Incorporate Appreciating Rich Proofs by having students read and analyze proofs of non-obvious claims; and (3) Incorporate Reading Author Stories to help humanize mathematics and help students develop a sense of belonging in proof-based mathematics. We will employ research-based measures related to each of the reading activities to evaluate our success compared to other Transition to Proof classes.
