In this activity students will cut strips of paper and assemble them into two-column proofs. There are three proofs that deal with parallel lines with transversals. A "Hints Sheet" is given to help struggling students.
This activity could be used as an alternative assessment, a partner activity, or as a review before a test. I copy the student's sheet on colored paper and let them hang their finished product.
Some of the proofs reasons used are listed below:
Vertical Angle Congruence Thm.
Corresponding Angle Congruence Thm.
Transitive Property of Congruence
Linear Pair Postulate
Parallel Lines Converse Theorems are not included.
