The Angle-Angle (AA) Criterion for Two Triangles to Be Similar
What do you need to prove triangles are similar? Learners answer this question through a construction exploration. Once they establish the criteria, they use the congruence and proportionality properties of similar objects to find...

Ratios and Proportions with Congruent and Similar Polygons
Investigate how similar and congruent figures compare. Learners understand congruent figures have congruent sides and angles, but similar figures only have congruent angles — their sides are proportional. After learning the...

Geometry: Transformations, Congruence, and Similarity
Rigid motions are to congruence as what are to similarity? Investigate properties of rigid motions and define congruence in terms of rigid motions with the ninth chapter of a 10-part eighth grade workbook series. The lesson then prompts...

New Review Triangle AA Similarity: Lesson
Two sets of congruent angles leads to three. Using diagrams of two triangles, the presentation intuitively shows that if two sets of angles are congruent, the third set is too. The portion of a geometry playlist uses that information to...

New Review Congruent Triangles: Lesson
Given two congruent triangles, the resource provides the definition of congruent triangles and marks the corresponding parts. The portion of a basic geometry playlist shows the triangles are congruent by moving one on top of the other...

Similarity and Dilations - Discover Properties of Similar Figures
Learners investigate properties of similar figures. In this properties of similar figures lesson, pupils construct similar figures using Cabri Jr. They dilate their figure to create a similar one, and discuss the relationships between...
