The skill of understanding definitions in detail, and applying them logically, is another crucial part of Adult citizenship responsibility which is taught very well by mathematics (too bad Proofs were no longer a standard part of geometry classes after my middle school classes back in the early 1980s) and is thus a key part of any democracy movement. Understanding evidence and how to draw logical conclusions from primary or proofed secondary sources is also a crucial part of being an Adult in a democratic society.
Mathematics helps with that.

1.) The devil is in the detail, don’t you think? How can Proofs help teach logic?
2.) Share your thoughts with us, and why you think them, and
3.) Write a book, story, blog post or tweet that uses those thoughts, and then, please tell us about it! If you write a book, once it is published please consider donating a copy to your local public library.
