Proof | Mathematics homework help


Getting Started

In  this discussion you will complete a two-column proof. However, you will  make 2-3 errors for your classmates to find and reconcile. You can use  any strategy to create the proof. Additionally, you will find and  reconcile errors in your classmates’ proofs. Understanding proofs will  help you become a critical thinker.

Upon successful completion of this discussion, you will be able to:

  • Recognize direct and indirect proofs.
  • Formulate direct and indirect proofs.
  • Articulate in writing the interpretation and significance of mathematical proofs.


  • Video: Deductive Reasoning
  • Video: Reviewing Properties of Equality and Writing Two-Column Proof
