Learning Goal: Explore and develop understanding of what criteria is required for triangle congruence.
- Problems to be placed in unit or spiraling
- Estimation – Side Length 2
- Warm Up (Big Ideas)
- Exploration Activity (NCTM Illuminations)
- Notes (inspired by Jessica Uy)
- Class competition to see who can make the best turkey with desmos.com/geometry
- Common Core
- HSG.CO.B.7 – Use the definition of congruence in terms of rigid motions to show that two triangles are congruent if and only if corresponding pairs of sides and corresponding pairs of angles are congruent.
- HSG.CO.B.8 – Explain how the criteria for triangle congruence (ASA, SAS, and SSS) follow from the definition of congruence in terms of rigid motions.
- G.4(C) – verify that a conjecture is false using a counterexample
- G.5(A) – investigate patterns to make conjectures about geometric relationships, including angles formed by parallel lines cut by a transversal, criteria required for triangle congruence, special segments of triangles, diagonals of quadrilaterals, interior and exterior angles of polygons, and special segments and angles of circles choosing from a variety of tools
