This product contains a variety of options to help student improve their proving skills.
Parallelogram Proofs Part 2 focuses extends on the properties of parallelograms (found in Parallelogram Proofs 1-3) discovering properties of specifically the rhombus, rectangle and square. Using a method I call placemat proofs works for students at all ability levels.
Directions for Placemat Proofs
Each group will receive an envelope containing the following:
1-a blank proof sheet
2-a set of corresponding statements and reasons printed on cardstock and cut out.
You can provide students with a recording sheet and/or place an answer sheet in the folder (or the next folder in rotation) for students to self check.
This product can also be used around the room, pass the problem, printed into booklets, placed in sheet protectors or communicators so students can write on with dry erase markers, or cut and paste.
Answers are provided for each proof. Remember, in most cases there are multiple correct ways to develop proofs. I tried to incorporate several possible solutions, but as time allows and the abilities of your students allow conversations and the development of additional different and creative proofs.
Note: This product starts at proof 4.
Do you love proofs and like to save money?? The Parallelogram Proof Bundle includes this product and Parallelogram Proofs (proofs 1-3) focusing on properties of parallelograms. That is over 80 pages of Parallelogram PROOFS!!
