Abstract

This research intends to analyse how mathematically gifted 8th graders (age 14) discover and proof the properties on the sum of face angles of polyhedron. In this research, the problems on the sum of face angles of polyhedrons were given to 36 gifted students, and their discovery and proof processes were analysed on the basis of their the activity sheets and the researcher's observation. The discovery and proof processes the gifted students made were categorized, and levels revealed in their processes were analysed.
