"Proofs and Viable Arguments are clearly two completely different animals!" Well, that says it, doesn't it! Our kids don't get the point of proof when it's presented in this, "here's the right way," style. Nice lesson!

ReplyDeleteAmy - I love this activity, and as you said, shows them how math is connected to thinking (not just calculating). I would love to try something like this, although I am not sure how it dovetails with my department's curriculum. Do you have a curriculum map/pacing calendar you could share? - Wendy Menard

ReplyDeleteI haven't taught Advanced Algebra for awhile at this school, so I will hunt around and get back to you. What textbook do you use?
