When students prove theorems or solve problems on their own and present their results to their peers, interesting things happen. Expected outcomes include students’ developing problem-solving and theorem-proving skills and the ability to tell whether reasoning is correct or flawed. But beyond those mathematical skills, this type of experience frequently involves important consequences on students’ self-reliance, independent thinking, and willingness to make mistakes.
