The first couple proofs we did were about angles (and not lines), so I suggested students pull out the ones related to angles and just deal with those, which did help narrow things down. I printed them all on yellow and am planning on using a different color when I print triangle theorems. However, I wish that Given was really bright and easy to find since it's used every time. I could still print one page of just Givens and that would be enough, so maybe that will happen, eventually...Tina Cardonehttps://www.blogger.com/profile/00549943329133396794noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-812794395259173668.post-32804736664852279442012-10-17T19:52:52.320-04:002012-10-17T19:52:52.320-04:00A small idea that might help scaffold this kind of...A small idea that might help scaffold this kind of task is to ask them to pull from subsets of the larger pool of cards in the first few proofs you ask them to write. I feel like having all of those cards "in play" from the beginning might be a little overwhelming.<br /><br />But you'd probably want to include in those smaller subsets some cards that are "wrong"--ones that won't be useful in constructing the proof at hand. Otherwise it'll probably feel too fill-in-the-blank and not as fun.<br /><br />Also, it might be interesting if you or your students were to assign colors to the cards according to some kind of categorization. Maybe something like: given, definition, algebra, diagram, theorem. Or maybe by subject matter instead.<br /><br />Hope something of that is useful. Excited to hear how it goes!Justin Lanierhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/11386367931599418555noreply@blogger.com
