Summary The article questions the status of proof in mathematics. The article mentions that proof has always been the driving force in historical developments in mathematics. It mentions that proof has been for centuries the staple of mathematics and is used to prepare students for higher mathematical studies and to help them learn to handle the demands of daily life. It cites that changes in school curriculum in the last decades of the twentieth century has rendered proof-free mathematics.
