I'm tutoring a girl in my math class on how to write proofs. She understands what information she needs to prove something, but the only problem is she doesn't understand how to put the data in order. I tried to the following to clear things up for her:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1.) I asked her to prove to me that the sandwich I had sitting next to me (in a wrapper) was indeed a sandwhich.

result: didn't work quite as well as I hoped. The proof for this was a little too redundant, that it was hard.

2.) I began explaining proofs for triangle postulates ASA, SAS,

AAS, SSS and Isosceles Triangle Theorem (my favorite!).

None of the above worked well. I DON'T KNOW what'll work best so that she could really understand it. I feel really bad that I haven't cleared it up for her. ANY help will do.
