Algebraic Proofs (Equations with Distributive Property) Cut and Paste Activity
During this cut and paste activity, students cut out the statements and reasons for 4 proofs and then paste the statements and reasons into two-column proofs. You will need to provide posters or paper on which the students will glue their proofs.
There are 2 different versions of this cut & paste activity. Version 1 has easier equations than Version 2. Both versions share 2 of the same equations. I typically use Version 1 with on-level classes and Version 2 with honors classes.
Both versions include a "hints sheet" that you can give to students who are struggling with the proofs. The "hints sheet" has some of the statements and reasons already filled in so students can see if they are on the right track. This is a great way to differentiate for students who need extra help! An answer key is also included.
