My son is going through Jacobs old geometry text. I too thought giving each step a point would weigh the test too heavily on proofs. I decided to give him 1 point for listing all the "given" steps and the final "Prove", 1 point for listing ANY additional steps that were correct, and 1 more point for doing the whole thing correct-That's a total of 3 points. (Jacob's answers usually show alternative ways of doing the proof.) I think our children need to do a few of the proofs in each chapter. It will improve their thinking skills, even if you have to guide them through each one! I hope this helps those out there still wondering.........
