Summary
This booklet, Proof in Geometry, discusses the construction of geometric proofs and gives some criteria useful for determining whether or not a proof is logically correct and whether or not is actually proves what it was meant to prove. Sample invalid proofs are presented, and the errors in them are then corrected. This booklet can be read by anyone familiar with high school geometry
