What educators are saying

This is a topic that is quite challenging for many students. I thought it was very useful guiding students through the process of solving proofs. Nice product.
The students love the interactive notes, the coloring eases the stress that some of them have with math.


Proof Writing in High School Geometry (Two-Column Proofs) - Introduction:

This full unit pack (108 pages including answer keys) has all the resources you need to teach your Geometry students how to write proofs. It begins at the most basic level with the properties and postulates that will later become justifications in their proofs.

The unit teaches the structure and process for writing a proof, beginning with basic algebra proofs. This unit is a favorite because it eases the stress by helping students to get comfortable with substitution and the transitive property before being led into Geometry proofs, unlike the method of teaching kids how to write a proof that is in most textbooks.

A full presentation in color is included as well as a set of black and white printables with practice, differentiated warm-ups, quizzes, a graphic organizer, blank proof templates, and a puzzle activity. There are plenty of worksheets containing proofs in a variety of difficulty levels. All answer keys are included. A pacing guide is also included.

The presentation pages walk the students through proof writing step-by-step and include hints and tips. Please see the preview for more information and sample pages.

The zip file includes a presentation and a set of printables (PDF).

Topics included (justifications used in proofs):

Addition Property of Equality

Subtraction Property of Equality

Multiplication Property of Equality

Division Property of Equality

Reflexive Property (of Equality and Congruence)
