I am involved in a professional development project for high school
math and science teachers. One goal is to contrast the notion of 
`justification' in math and science.

1) Please suggest papers on this topic that are accessible to secondary 
school math and 
science teachers.  (There will be a logic course for math teachers in 
addition to joint workshops so treatments solely of math are relevant).

2) Does anyone know good examples of survey instrument on attitudes 
towards foundations of mathematics and science that might be useful for 
evaluating progress in this group?
