### PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Introducing students to geometric proofs in a geometry class can be a difficult task for both teachers and students. I created this introductory lesson to help get my students' brains in gear. After teaching the first few introductory chapters the kids should have some understanding of basic definitions, postulates and theorems. This worksheet will help them "squeeze" as much information as possible from "givens" in formal proofs. Since I started using this paper and other similar worksheets my students have had an easier time with geometric proofs.

If you are a new teacher it can be difficult and time consuming to come up with brand new effective lessons for your kids. This paper will not only help the students but help new teachers get a better understanding of the foundation of proofs.

This is great! I will getting a little anxious about how I was going to approach proof writing, and this will definitely help.
Thanks Andrea! It took me a few years but I finally figured out how to set the proofs up so that they are a little easier to digest for the kids and from a teacher's perspective. I'm glad this will help! My other proof packets are set up using the same logic if you want to check out my other Geometry listings.

I like how you made it free and affordable! How about you upload some English posters! That would be helpful for me and my class.
Thanks!
