Description

Through investigations, geometry students can become mathematicians – discovering and proving new theorems. I have found that quadrilaterals yield the greatest trove of hidden treasures. More importantly, the desired consequent is answering the universal question every beginning geometry student poses: “Why do I need to prove this?”
