LAR: Yes
Title: Joking with Proofs
Url: http://illuminations.nctm.org/LessonDetail.aspx?id=L823
Publisher: National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
Description: This geometry lesson from Illuminations aids students in the transition from using two-column proofs to paragraph-style proofs. The material helps students to understand proofs as chains of statements, and learn to think of proofs as presentation tools rather than an effort to find unknown values or a solution. The lesson is appropriate for grades 9-12 and should require 1 class period to complete.
