Geometric Proofs for High School Students by Mind Map: Geometric Proofs for High School Students

1. Axioms, Theorems, Postulates, Definitions

1.1. The most used, the most important, and how to use them in proofs

2. What they already know

2.1. thoughts about geometry before the class, any knowledge of proofs, any knowledge of theorems and axioms

3. Why do we need proofs

3.1. necessary standard to graduate, creates foundation for high levels of math, opens student minds to visualizing what they are proving, introduces them to logical arguments

3.2. Why We Need to Keep Teaching Formal Proof in Geometry

4. Strategies of Solving Proofs

4.1. contradiction, direct proofs, indirect proofs

4.2. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zQ6Y0fismDg
