Chapter 5: Congruent Triangles

EQ: Can you use congruent triangles to find the distance across a river?

Once triangles are shown to be congruent (by using 1 of the 5 triangles congruences (p273):  SAS, SSS, HL, ASA or AAS), then you can use CPCTC (Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles are Congruent) to find how wide the river is.

Prep work: p274(15-20, 24, 26) and p281(3-8, 15, 17)

EQ: What are there other shortcuts to showing triangles congruent?

Know all 5 triangles congruences (p273):  SAS (Side-Angle-Side), SSS (Side-Side-Side), HL (Hypotenuse-Leg), ASA (Angle-Side-Angle) and AAS (Angle-Angle-Side). Also know CPCTC (Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles are Congruent).

EQ: What type of triangles have base angles?  Are there other shortcuts to showing triangles congruent?

Know the Base Angles theorem for Isosceles triangles (p252).  SSS (Side-Side-Side) and HL (Hypotenuse Leg) theorem are introduced (p262-264).

Chapter 5: Congruent Triangles

EQ: Do we really need to show that all three sides and angles are the same to prove triangles are congruent?

SAS (Side-Angle-Side) theorem is introduced (p246-247).  Know what an included angle is (the angle formed by sides).

Chapter 5: Congruent Triangles

EQ: What does a congruence statement tell you?

Know the Exterior Angle Theorem (p234) and 3rd Angle Theorem (p242).  Also know how to identify congruent parts of polygons from a congruence statement and be able to write one (see examples 1 & 2 starting on p.240).

Prep work: p236(15-18, 25-28, 49-52)  p243(3-10, 17, 18, 22-24)

Chapter 3: Parallel and Perpendicular Lines

EQ: Can you remember all we’ve covered in this chapter?

Prep work: p236(3-6, 11-14, 19-24, 29-36, 43-44)
Look at examples starting on page 232.  This is just review of middle school topics on classifying triangles by their sides (scalene, isosceles or equilateral) and angles (acute, right, obtuse or equiangular) .  These problems also use the fact that the interior angles of a triangle add to 180 degrees.
