Abstract

Regarding defining as a mathematical activity bridging informal to formal proof, two seventh graders will reinvent the definition of rectangles under a social and practical setting based on their informal argumentation. Their apprehensions of figures, implicit concepts/theorems and the cognitive architecture of defining are discussed in this paper.
