ab: Summary: We consider beliefs that intervene during the process of proving.
At the beginning we reflect on the relationship between beliefs and
knowledge. After we outline some examples that show how the process of
proving carried out by students may be shaped by their beliefs. In
particular, we see that the concept of leading beliefs that we used
when studying teachers’ beliefs may be useful also when studying
students’ beliefs.
