1 2-5 Postulates and Paragraph Proofs (p.89) - postulate - a statement that describes a fundamental relationship between the basic terms of geometry.* Postulates are accepted as true without proof. ** Postulates 2.1 through 2.7 can be found on pages 89 & 90Postulate Through any two points, there is exactly one line.Postulate Through any three points not on the same line, there is exactly one plane.
2 Postulate 2.3 A line contains at least two points. Postulate A plane contains at least three points not of the same line.Postulate If two points lie in a plane, then the entire line containing those points lies in that plane.Postulate If two lines intersect, then their intersection is exactly one point.Postulate If two planes intersect, then their intersection is a line.
3 - proof - a logical argument in which each statement you make is supported by a statement that is accepted as true.- paragraph proof -an informal proof written in the form of a paragraph that explains why a conjecture for a given situation is true.5 essential parts of a good proof: (p.90)State the theorem or conjecture to be proven.List the given information.If possible, draw a diagram to illustrate the given information.State what is to be proved.Develop a system of deductive reasoning.
4 . Example: Write a paragraph proof Given that M is the midpoint of PQ, write a paragraph proof to show that PM = MQ.~(your work should look like this).PMQGiven: M is the midpoint of PQ.Prove: PM = MQ.~From the definition of midpoint of a segment, PM = MQ. This means that PM and MQ have the same measure. By the definition of congruence, if two segments have the same measure, then they are congruent. Thus, PM = MQ.~
5 - theorem - a statement or conjecture that can be proven true by undefined terms, definitions, and postulates.Theorem Midpoint TheoremIf M is the midpoint of AB, then AM = MB.~

7 (example 1 - page 94) *step-by-step* deductive argument - a proof formed by a group of algebraic steps used to solve a problem.(example 1 - page 94) *step-by-step*two-column proof - a formal proof that contains statements and reasons organized in two columns. Each step is called a statement, and the properties that justify each step are called reasons.(example 2 - page 95)Geometric Propertiesbox - bottom of page 95
8 2-7 Proving Segment Relationships (p.101) Postulate ‘Ruler Postulate’ The points on any line or line segment can be paired with real numbers so that, given any two points A and B on a line, A corresponds to zero, and B corresponds to a positive real number.Postulate Segment Addition Postulate If B is between A and C, then AB + BC = AC.If AB + BC = AC, then B is between A and C.
9 Theorem 2.2 Segment Congruence Congruence of segments is reflexive, symmetric, and transitive.Reflexive Property AB = ABSymmetric Property If AB = CD, then CD = AB.Transitive Property If AB = CD, and CD = EF, then AB = EF.~~~~~~
