# Algebraic Proof Lesson

Description:

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!

Learning Targets:

Students will be able to solve a multi-step equation

Students will be able to give justification for each step of an algebraic proof

Students will be able to use properties of equality and congruence to complete an algebraic proof
