Cañadas, M. C., Deulofeu, J., Figueiras, L., Reid, D. y Yevdokimov, O. (2007). The conjecturing process: perspectives in theory and implications in practice. Journal of Teaching and Learning, 5(1), 55-72.
In this paper we analyze different types and stages of the conjecturing process. A classification of conjectures is discussed. A variety of problems that could lead to conjectures are considered from the didactical point of view. Results from a number of research studies are used to identify and investigate a number of questions related to the theoretical background of conjecturing as well as practical implications in the learning process.
