Conjecture

 

the restoration of a part of a text that is unreadable or completely absent in the original manuscript, which a researcher introduces into a text in the course of a scholarly description. The reconstruction of a text is based on historical, linguistic, and paleographic data. The use of certain textual elements is assumed to be systematic throughout a manuscript, for example, uniform makeup and consistency in orthography and in the use of words, syntactic forms, and expressions. Reconstruction is also possible on the basis of more general historical and philological data, as, for instance, the restoration of standard ritual or juridical formulas.

We focussed especially on tasks that provide opportunities for comparing and contrasting, forming conjectures (that is, generalising), and testing, validating and justifying these conjectures.
In this short paper we describe a project inspired by Ma's "Exploring New Knowledge" in which future 7-12 grade mathematics teachers enrolled in a fall 2013 capstone course at a typical regional state university were assigned fictitious student conjectures. These future teachers (all current high school mathematics teachers) were classified as undergraduate mathematics majors with a concentration in mathematics education.
