  1. This first official session of Math 1175 concerning classifications and vocabulary of various angles and triangles names was a great way to review the concepts that were almost forgotten in our high school lives. though extremely simple, the reviews were well explained. One question I have is will we be making proof tables, and if so will proofs such as the the “exterior angle theorom”, be one of the proofs we have to learn?

      Hi Shakira,

      Thanks for being our first member to post on the OpenLab, and welcome! We will not spend a great deal of time on formal proofs in the form of proof tables (or “T-Table proofs”), although we will sometimes ask you to justify your steps in a problem. Regarding the exterior angle theorem (and other theorems you may come across), it is a good idea to understand how it works and is applied, but you do not need to memorize a proof.

      Mr. Reitz

    I know this equation from my high school. It is also in my head always. When prof. is teaching the lesson I always refreshing my memory. It is help me to get better idea.
