Base Angles of Isosceles Triangles are Congruent

Proof is probably one of the most difficult concepts to teach in high school mathematics. In this short post, we are going to discuss a simple activity that can be used in teaching┬ámathematical proofs in Geometry. First, we can use a rectangular paper, fold it in the middle, and cut through the diagonal. Of course, […]

Proof That Only 3 Regular Polygons Tessellate

Tessellation is the tiling a surface (in this case a flat surface) without gaps and overlaps. This concept is very important since many of the floors and walls are tiled nowadays. But tessellation is a lot more than that. It actually obeys the law of mathematics particularly angles. The plane can be tiled with just […]

Parallel Lines and Ratio Proof

Parallel lines have many important properties that you have to memorize in order to be successful in proving problems. In this post, we will discuss the properties of parallel lines intersecting two other lines. We are going to show the relationship among┬áthree parallel lines intersecting two lines. In the figure below, parallel lines l, m, […]
