Abstract

The purpose of this research is to promote the construction of mathematical proof from argumentation at the primary level. To show this is a viable instructional strategy at the primary level, we use a teaching experiment methodology and a task related to geometric proof in this research study. To model and analyze the collective argumentation that took place in the classroom, we reconstructed the discussion using the extended Toulmin model. Collective argumentation at the primary level is a valuable opportunity for primary students and their teachers to generate mathematical proof through collaboration.
