Proofs take time to learn. They take an even longer time to get good at. I have been trying to tackle proofs from every direction I can possibly think of. The latest of which is called Pass the Proof.

Here is a quick rundown:

- students break into groups of four
- each group gets a sheet that has 3 proofs on it, each looks something like this

*or this*

- each student has three options; fill in a statement, fill in a reason, or erase one of those two.
- After doing so they pass the sheet to the next person in the group.
- Repeat till Q.E.D.

I made into a game. The first correct group received 3 points, second – two points, third – one point. We briefly talked about each proof upon completion.

I really enjoyed this activity!

** Update ** Here are the proofs I used.

Katie MacPumped about this! My students and I are loving it… I’ve never seen them so interested in pouring through their notebooks for the names of theorems.
