ab: Summary: Arguing and proving are essential elements in mathematics. To
learn these skills from a mathematical point of view, elementary
geometry is often used as a paradigmatic part of mathematics to
demonstrate and to learn how to find an argument or how to construct a
proof. This text presents several reasons why elementary geometry can
be seen as a fruitful part of mathematics to learn these abilities.
