Tenth graders complete a unit of lessons on congruent triangles and triangle proofs. They observe and participate in teacher-led discussions of examples of the methods to prove that triangles are congruent, and create an original proof.

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...

Proofs into Practice: The Pythagorean Theorem in the Real World
As an introduction to the lesson, learners verify the Pythagorean theorem with a hands-on proof. Then, pupils use the theorem to determine whether three side lengths could form a right triangle and choose one of two real-life situations...

Proof of the Pythagorean Theorem Using Transformations
Middle and high schoolers construct a triangle using Cabri Jr. They construct squares on each of the legs and hypotenuse of the triangle. Pupils show that the area of the squares on the leg equal the area of the square on the hypotenuse.
