Students play a game in which they place beans on numbers that represent the sum of two dice. Each time a number comes up in a dice roll, a corresponding bean may be removed. The first person who removes all his beans wins the game. Students mathematically analyze the game to develop strategies. (less)

Book of Proof is an introduction to the language and methods of mathematical proofs. The text is meant to bridge the computational courses that students typically encounter in their first years of college (such as calculus or differential equations) to more theoretical, proof-based courses such as topology, analysis and abstract algebra. Topics include sets, logic, counting, methods of conditional and non-conditional proof, disproof, induction, relations, functions and infinite cardinality. (less)

This book is designed for the transition course between calculus and differential equations and the upper division mathematics courses with an emphasis on proof and abstraction. The book has been used by the author and several other faculty at Southern Connecticut State University. There are nine chapters and more than enough material for a semester course. Student reviews are favorable. It is written in an informal, conversational style with a large number of interesting examples and exercises, so that a student learns to write proofs while working on engaging problems. (less)

The goal of this task is to use geometry study the structure of beehives. Beehives have a tremendous simplicity as they are constructed entirely of small, equally sized walls. In order to as useful as possible for the hive, the goal should be to create the largest possible volume using the least amount of materials. In other words, the ratio of the volume of each cell to its surface area needs to be maximized. This then reduces to maximizing the ratio of the surface area of the cell shape to its perimeter.

This lesson lays some of the ground work for eventually writing two column proofs. In the lesson students use known geometric facts to solve for missing angles. Students are asked to identify the key concepts required for the solution and to record the a path for finding the measure of a particular angle. Key concepts include the sum of the measures of the interior angles of a triangle and quadrilateral, parallel line relationships, and what can and cannot be assumed from a drawing. (less)

An interactive applet and associated web page that demonstrates a graphical proof of Pythagoras' Theorem. The applet shows a right triangle that is replicated and then moved around to demonstrate the relationship between the sides. It can can be stepped through slowly to allow classroom discussion, or let to run as a movie. Useful for students who like to see things graphically as opposed to symbolically. Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. This resource is a component of the Math Open Reference Interactive Geometry textbook project at http://www.mathopenref.com. (less)
