Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to examine the process of proving theorem or conjecture in mathematics and the types of proofs which may be produced by students. Proving is closely related to mathematics. Students are taught about proof since they are in junior high school. However, there are many researches reveal that many students lack of mathematical proving ability. Many teachers only focused on the product of the proof than the process of proof. This make proving to be a little bit confusing for students since they do not know how the process of proving. In this paper I will discuss the steps of proving stated by some expert started by exploration of the problem situation until formulation of formal proof. In addition to understand the proving process, it is important for mathematics teachers or researchers to understand the types of proofs produced by students in order to analyze development of students proving ability. In this paper will be explained the types of proofs including empirical proofs and ded uctive proofs.
