Creating convincing arguments or "proofs" to show that statements are always true is a key mathematical skill.
The problems in this feature offer students the chance to investigate geometrical properties, make conjectures and create convincing mathematical proofs.
Many of the problems in this feature include proof sorting activities which challenge students to rearrange statements in order to recreate clear, rigorous proofs. These tasks aim to introduce students to the formality and logic of mathematical proof.
You can watch a recording of the webinar in which we discussed the mathematical thinking which can be prompted by these activities.
Plus magazine has a selection of interesting articles exploring proofs in which pictures play an important role.
