Sailing with Congruency

This Sailing with Congruency activity & project also includes:

Young geometers will have fun with this real-world application of a geometry theorem. Working in groups, they explore the design of sailboats and must come up with a convincing argument about how the manufacturer can save time and money. The argument requires proving that each point on the perpendicular bisector of a segment is equidistant from the endpoints of the segment. This activity is an excellent example of how geometry is useful in solving everyday problems.
