I am finding it difficult to motivate students on why they should know how to prove mathematical results. They learn them just to pass examinations, but show no real interest or enthusiasm for this. How can I inspire them to love essential kind of mathematics? They love doing mathematical techniques. Any resources or any answers would really help me.

I’ve adopted vector methods to make Euclid’s work more fun as opposed towards the longwinded synthetic approach.
