Get Proofs out of NYS Geometry Curriculum!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!


This petition is to try to push the state to remove the teaching of geometry proofs from the mandatory schooling curriculum. As a student I can say that proofs are one of the more confusing units in the course and are brought up in many units. Many schooling departments and especially the students try to prove the point that proofs are not necessary to be taught and should be taken off of the curriculum. Although this petition will not be the breaking point, I hope that it will be a starting point to take this unit off of the curriculum because it does not benefit or prepare students for the future. If you are considering becoming a profession such as a mathematician, carpenter, etc. it should be taught in your college course, not in a geometry class. It only further confuses the students and turns them away from doing well in geometry.
