Upon completion of this course the student is able to:
- develop simple proofs for mathematical statements and can write them down correctly;
- recall different techniques for mathematical proofs and examples thereof;
- assess the correctness of mathematical proofs and can find mistakes and can refute incorrect statements by means of counterexamples;
- work in a small groups of students to find proofs of mathematical statements.
Prooflab II is a continuation of Prooflab I in Module 1 of the Applied Mathematics Bachelor Curriculum. Prooflab II consists of two three-hour Team-based Learning sessions and a project, which is evaluated by a written report. All of the TBL sessions involve material from the different parts of the module. In two of the TBL sessions, students learn to critically read and evaluate propositions by discussing multiple choice questions in groups. In the other two TBL sessions, students learn how to formally write down a proof, by working on some of the more challenging proofs of the module parts, and by peer-review. For the prooflab project, students study a classic proof from literature. The students are evaluated by a written report, but the last part is a presentation session, where students can show what they have learned.|
