Are you looking for a way to ease your students into complex proofs? This printable study guide/homework assignment involves the following theorems and postulates:
-Converse of the Corresponding Angles Postulate
-Converse of the Alternate Interior Angles Theorem
-Converse oft the Alternate Exterior Angles Theorem
-Converse of the Consecutive Interior Angles Theorem (Same-side interior angles theorem)
The first set of problems is very simple just to get their minds used to the idea of proving that the lines are parallel. The additional problems get slightly harder as you go. It is purposely a little bit repetative so that the students can get a strong foundation for the proofs much like my other proof packets.
If you are looking for more resources on geometric proofs please check out my other products. I have a lot of other great proof assignments and will be uploading more shortly. I would also appreciate any feedback you would be willing to leave on the site. Thanks and happy teaching!
