Abstract [en]

The context of this paper is a project aimed at meeting the challenges of teaching an introduction-to-proof course at our own institutions. These courses are typically taken by second year students intending to major in mathematics or computer science and are taught in sections of 15 to 24 students. These students benefit from being given the freedom to explore different methods of proof without the presumption that they will use a certain method.  This is the story of how what could have been a routine, closed problem became an open one.
