Prove it! An Introduction to Proofs
A proof is a logical mathematical argument used to show the relationship between two statements.
We can use this set of discs to learn the process of creating a proof and understand the mechanics of how they work.
Choose a disc to be your start. It will be your given statement.
Choose a disc to be your end. It will be what your are trying to prove.
Place additional discs after your given disc following the rules below until you reach your final disc that you must prove.
These discs can also be used in many different ways with younger children! We have used them to make colour patterns, shape patterns, to sort by shape and colour and much more.
Set includes 16 discs (1.5 inches in diameter) in a cloth storage bag and a PDF download of the example proofs, proof template, and reason statements.
