Practicing Puzzle Proofs

Last week I worked on writing proofs with my regular geometry students. Some of them have a difficult time coming up with reasons and statements as well as knowing how to proceed to the next step. I wanted something that would help them review for their upcoming quiz as well as help to get them thinking about the logical flow of a two-column proof.

We did the activity below where they had to cut up the pieces and paste/tape them into the appropriate spots. Some of the pieces were not used to add a little bit of a challenge. They were really engaged and loved it.

This is short because I just needed to blog to hopefully get me back into it!
