Congruence Shortcut Work #Teach180

Today we formally started to look at Triangle congruency shortcuts in Geometry. We, by the end of class, established the following conjectures:

  • 1 congruent side is not enough to make 2 congruent triangles
  • 2 congruent sides is not enough to make 2 congruent triangles
  • 3 congruent sides always makes congruent triangles
  • Some 2 sides congruent and 1 angle combinations work, but we haven’t found a pattern for when.

Good progress was made with our math family today
