Geometry Proof Question
Posted:

While discussing the new curriculum and planning, we have a new teacher who has some different ways of completing proofs. We are wondering if anyone has seen them or would allow credit for it on the regents.
For example, she writes: (= means congruent)
//> = <'s for "parallel lines cut but a transversal form two congruent alternate interior angles"
or
= P = (triangle symbol) = for "Corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent"
A couple of us are uncomfortable with these type of "reasons" on a proof and are curious, do you know if they would be given full credit and what your thoughts are. Thank you for your time.
