Abstract: We show that a meticulous design can encourage students in dyads to shift from informal reasoning (visual, inquiry-based) to reasoning moved by logical necessity (abductive and deductive). We describe a case study in which one dyad solves a series activities purposely designed. We show that argumentation first relies on intuition, and then intertwines the activities of conjecturing and checking the conjectures though the use of different gestures.
