Abstract

Mathematical proof is a deductive argument logically composed to show the truth of a statement. The study of mathematical proofs is separated between construct a mathematical proof and comprehending a given proof. This article is aimed to discuss the notion of mathematical proving ability which is combined from two ability: construction and comprehension of proofs. The assessment of this ability is derived from assessing both construction and comprehension.
