Learning Intentions (Objectives)
1) Students will be able to differentiate between appropriate triangle congruence theorems that can be used to prove two triangles are congruent.
2) Students will apply congruence theorems to solve real world problems.
Rationale (Diagnostic Results)
You may struggle to identify congruent or similar triangles and often forget what those words mean. In problems with more than one triangle, you may automatically conclude that the triangles are either congruent or similar without giving any evidence.
Standards Addressed in the Lesson
- Practice (Congruent Triangles)
- Try This! (Applications of Congruent Triangles)
- Making Connections
