ab: Summary: In this article, which was first published in 1991, the late Sandy
Dawson, discusses aspects of a Lakatosian approach to mathematics
teaching. The ideas are illustrated with examples from three teaching
situations: making conjectures about the next number in a sequence;
making conjectures about the internal angles in a triangle using Logo;
and developing a way to find the difference between two eighteen-digit
numbers entirely as a mental calculation. The article is a reprint of
[in: D. Pimm (ed.) and E. Love (ed.), Teaching and learning school
mathematics. London: Hodder and Stoughton (1991)].
