Algebraic Proof Lesson
The students will get their first introduction to proofs. Since we are dealing with algebraic proofs, this is the first time students will be challenged to justify every step of solving an equation. They must start to think WHY along with HOW. This is a great introduction to geometric proofs because although the statement-reasons format stay the same, students will start to enter the abstract world and prove things that seem foreign to them. Instead of scaring them away, lets start with solving algebra equations that they are comfortable with!
