Educación financiera: ¿por qué la necesitamos? [chapter]
Financial education: why do we need it?

Adriana Toledo
Financial citizenship entails an individual's ability to make the right choices, exercising their rights and fulfilling the associated duties. It is a concept taken from the term citizenship.  ...  Capitalism is a system predominated by private ownership and the constant quest for profit and the accumulation of wealth.  ...  Benjamin Franklin Ten years of the National Strategy for Financial Education (ENEF) Have you heard about financial education? Do you know what it means? Why do we need it?  ...

Why do we Still Believe in Newton's Law ? Facts, Myths and Methods in Gravitational Physics [article]

a common origin (4) it is useful to consider the present situation under a historical perspective and (5) it could well be that we still do not understand gravity.  ...  Not to claim that we do know when we do not - this is the third. That's the kind of attitude I'd like to popularize. There is little hope for success.'

Mathematical Proof Between Generations [article]

Jonas Bayer, Christoph Benzmüller, Kevin Buzzard, Marco David, Leslie Lamport, Yuri Matiyasevich, Lawrence Paulson, Dierk Schleicher, Benedikt Stock, Efim Zelmanov
2022 arXiv   pre-print
A proof is one of the most important concepts of mathematics. However, there is a striking difference between how a proof is defined in theory and how it is used in practice.  ...  This article investigates the gap between the different definitions of a proof and possibilities to build bridges.  ...  In set theory, λ < ℵ 1 has a different meaning from λ < ω 1 even though ℵ 1 = ω 1 . • The libraries of formalized mathematics still have many gaps, and what they do have is difficult to find.  ...

Proof assistants: History, ideas and future

H. Geuvers
2009 Sadhana (Bangalore)  
In this paper I will discuss the fundamental ideas behind proof assis tants: What are they and what is a proof anyway?  ...  But there is still a long road ahead and I will indicate what we believe is needed for the further proliferation of proof assistants.  ...  You want to find out what the facts are, and what you do is in that respect sim ilar to what a laboratory technician does, but it is different in its degree of precision and information.'  ...

1994 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper introduces the imps proof script mechanism and some practical methods for exploiting it.  ...  "Proof by Emacs" is one among a range of techniques that imps supports to allow the mathematician to do what he would like to do anyway, but in a more convenient and reliable way.  ...  -To provide mathematical research with mechanized support covering a range of concrete and abstract mathematics, eventually with the help of a large theory library of formal mathematics.  ...

Towards the animation of proofs – testing proofs by examples

Susumu Hayashi, Ryosuke Sumitomo, Ken-ichiro Shii
2002 Theoretical Computer Science  
Logically, proof animation is merely a contrapositive of "proofs as programs", which is an application of Curry-Howard isomorphism to formal program development.  ...  In this paper, we introduce the notion of proof animation, which is a new application of the principle of "Curry-Howard isomorphism" to formal proof development.  ...  It is also a response to discussions with his friends in the Coq team on the paper [11] . The ÿrst author would like to thank them.  ...

Mathematical Method and Proof

Jeremy Avigad
2006 Synthese  
This view fails to explain why it is very often the case that a new proof of a theorem is deemed important.  ...  On a traditional view, the primary role of a mathematical proof is to warrant the truth of the resulting theorem.  ...  The challenge now is to clarify what it is that we think proofs are doing, and understand the mechanisms by which they do it.  ...

Universality of Proofs (Dagstuhl Seminar 16421)

Gilles Dowek, Catherine Dubois, Brigitte Pientka, Florian Rabe, Marc Herbstritt
2017 Dagstuhl Reports  
The seminar was motivated by the fact that it is nowadays difficult to exchange proofs from one proof assistant to another one.  ...  The seminar aims at providing a comprehensive overview of the existing techniques for interoperability and going further into the development of a common objective and framework for proof developments  ...  We identify the notion of an MCSat-friendly inference system, and define a generic MCSat calculus that is sound and complete for satisfiability in the union of n arbitrary theories (including for instance  ...

Towards a Comprehensive Conception of Mathematical Proof

Zakaria Ndemo, David. J. Mtetwa, Fred Zindi
2018 Journal of Education and Learning (EduLearn)  
Hence, it is suggested in this paper that current research could also focus on mechanisms that promote an analytic conceptions of mathematical proof that are comprehensive enough to allow students to engage  ...  There is overwhelming evidence that students face serious challenges in learning mathematical proof. Studies have found that students possess a superficial understanding of mathematical proof.  ...  We also express our appreciation of the tremendous support by Library Staff at BUSE and University of Zimbabwe in assisting us with access to data bases from which we obtained relevant literature ideas  ...
