 Abby's Astounding Geometry Blog! This blog is for Miss Jovanovich's algebra and geometry classes to share ideas, ask questions, and reflect on what skills and topics we are studying. If we are lucky, we might even get a chance to connect with other students studying the same stuff.

Pesky Proofs How many of you out there know what a proof is? I sure didn’t before last week! A proof in geometry is when you have to explain why and how you were able to come to a conclusion. While this may seem rather simple, the process is actually very difficult. For instance, you may be asked to prove the statement: ⦟ABC ≅ ⦟DEF. In order to do this, you must use justifications for every little step in your thought process. I didn’t realize how many steps solving equations took until I had to write them all down. These justifications are things like postulates, theorems, and definitions. However, no matter how much you wish it to be so, you cannot use “because I just know!”, which I found I often wanted to scream in class.
