Subject: Value of two-column proofs in geometry

Should geometry proofs be de-emphasized to create more time to cover
additional material?  No.  Geometry proofs are just about the only
thing to survive from a geometry course which you can put to use in
higher math courses:  the discipline, the structure, the linking, the
logic.  True, geometry proofs don't show up on the ubiquitous entrance
or exit tests, but they do teach students to think logically.
