ab: Summary: We suggest implications for teaching mathematical justification
with an analysis of 6th grade studentsâ€™ awareness of why they needed
mathematical justification and their levels of mathematics
justification in algebra and geometry and also how their levels of
mathematical justification were related to mathematical achievement.
$96\%$ of students thought mathematical justification was needed, the
reasons were limited to checking their solutions and answers. The level
of mathematical justification in algebra was higher than in geometry.
Students who had a higher mathematics achievement had higher levels of
mathematical justification. In conclusion, we searched the possibility
of teaching mathematical justification to students, and we found some
practical methods for teaching.
