What do you need to know in order to complete a proof?
Apply Geometric Marking Symbols Identify Geometric Postulates, Definitions, and Theorems. Identify Two-Column Proof Method.

How do you mark a figure? Angles- using arcs on each angle.
example:1  2 A Segments- using slash marks on each segment. example: AB  AC 1 2 B C

Parallel Lines – using an arrow on each line.
example: AD || BC A D Perpendicular lines – using a right angle box. example: AB  BC B C

What Postulates and Theorems are used to prove Triangles Congruent?
SSS Postulate - If the sides of one triangle are congruent to the sides of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent. SAS Postulate - If two sides and the included angle of one triangle are congruent to two sides and the included angle of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent. SSS SAS

ASA Postulate - If two angles and the included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the included side of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent. AAS Theorem - If two angles and a non included side are congruent to the corresponding two angles and side of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent. ASA AAS

What is the Two-Column Proof Method?
Let’s take the following paragraph proof and transform it into a two-column proof….

Two – Column Proof Statements Justifications D A E B C
Given: E is the midpoint of segment AC and segment BD Prove: ABE  CED. Statements Justifications D A 1. E is the midpoint of AC and BD 1. Given 2. AE  EC and BE  ED 2. Midpoint Theorem E B C . Paragraph Proof Since E is the midpoint of segment AC, segment AE is congruent to EC by midpoint theorem. Since E is the midpoint of segment BD, segment BE is congruent to segment ED by midpoint theorem. Angle AEB and angle CED are vertical angles by definition. Therefore angle AEB is congruent to angle CED because all vertical angles are congruent. Triangle ABE is congruent to triangle CED by the side-angle-side postulate. 3. AEB and CED are vertical angles. 3. Definition of Vertical Angles 4. AEBCED 4. All Vertical angles are congruent. 5. ABE  CED 5. SAS Postulate.

What Have We Learned So Far?
The symbols used to mark figures. Arcs, Slashes, Arrows, and Boxes The Postulates and Theorems used to prove triangles are congruent. SSS, SAS, ASA, and AAS What a Two-Column proof looks like. Column 1 is mathematical statements. Column 2 is justifications of those statements.

What are next steps in a proof?
Determine what can be assumed from the diagram and the theorem or postulate that allows the assumption. Enter next step into chart.

Determine Assumptions
Remember the previous relationship step. Angle 1 and angle 2 are congruent because all right angles are congruent. Segment TR is congruent to itself. These are the assumptions! Re-write them with symbols and justifications. 12: all right’s are . TRTR: Reflexive Property() Example: Given: 1 &2 are rt. And ST  TP. Prove: STR  PTR S 1 3 T R 2 4 P

What are next steps in a proof?
Ask yourself “Is the last step listed the prove statement?” If the answer is yes, then you are finished. If the answer is no, then Determine the next assumption from the present information and enter it into the chart.
