Learning Intentions (Objectives)
1) Students will develop the triangle congruence theorems through discovery.
2) Students will understand the order of the acronym for each theorem as it pertains to the triangle.
Rationale (Diagnostic Results)
You may get confused between congruent or similar triangles and might forget what those words mean. In problems with more than one triangle, you might automatically conclude that the triangles are either congruent or similar without giving any evidence.
