### Prove It!

1. 1. Prove it! Geometry Proofs
2. 2. Prove it! Givens and Conclusions
3. 3. Givens and conclusions <ul><li>In geometry proofs, you are told certain things. These are the GIVENS. We can assume that these are always true for the problem. </li></ul><ul><li>Your results based on the GIVENS are the CONCLUSION(S) </li></ul><ul><li>Given: AC  CB </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusion: C is the midpoint of AB </li></ul>
4. 4. Prove it! Triangle congruencies
5. 5. Triangle congruencies <ul><li>Two shapes are congruent if all their sides and angles are congruent </li></ul><ul><li>For Δ ABC  Δ DEF you need to know that: </li></ul><ul><li>AC  DF </li></ul><ul><li>CB  DE </li></ul><ul><li>AB  FE </li></ul><ul><li> CAB   DFE </li></ul><ul><li> ACB   FDE </li></ul><ul><li> CBA   DEF </li></ul>
6. 6. Triangle congruencies <ul><li>There are five shortcuts! </li></ul>
7. 7. Prove it! Triangle congruency short cuts
8. 8. Triangle congruency short-cuts <ul><li>If you can prove just one of the following short cuts, you have two congruent triangles </li></ul><ul><li>SSS (side-side-side) </li></ul><ul><li>SAS (side-angle-side) </li></ul><ul><li>ASA (angle-side-angle) </li></ul><ul><li>AAS (angle-angle-side) </li></ul><ul><li>HL (hypotenuse-leg) right triangles only! </li></ul>
9. 9. Triangle congruency short-cuts <ul><li>Given: Δ ABC and Δ DEF, AC  DF, CB  DE, AB  FE </li></ul><ul><li>Conclusion: Δ ABC  Δ DEF because of SSS </li></ul>
10. 10. Prove it! Writing 2-column Proofs
11. 11. Writing 2-column Proofs <ul><li>The left column lists the statements you are making </li></ul><ul><li>The right column lists the reasons why you are making the statements </li></ul><ul><li>Your final conclusion should be what you are trying to prove </li></ul>
