Geometry Proofs are pointless.
Debate Rounds (3)
R1) Common Sense
For this to be valid, I want to see proof of this. Give me an example of the proof measuring the length of an apothem of a regular polygon. This proof must not use any mathematical vocab, as well as no equations or mathematical equations. If not possible, proofs have a point.
That's really the only rebuttal I need.
P1) Discovering Mathematical Truth
Proofs are needed to demonstrate the truths and falsities of geometry . Without them, we would not be able to do much more difficult math problems.
Simply put, there are some proofs that are easy and could possible be proven with common sense. But there are others that are more difficult and that are necessary to higher level mathematics.
Looking forward to my opponent's response. Hopefully this doesn't end in FF.

Had the resolution been "Geometry Proofs are Boring" or "Geometry Proofs could be taught in half the Time" or something like that, Pro's arguments would be valid. But as far as geometric proofs having a purpose, or having a point, it is to show geometric falsities. Arguing that it took too much time has no relevance to this debate.
Back to Pro.
