Objective: Recognize and apply relationships between sides and angles of triangles
Theorem: If one side of a triangle is longer than another side, then the angle opposite the longer side has a greater measure than the angle opposite the shorter side.
List the angles from greatest
Theorem: If one angle of a triangle has a greater measure than another angle, then the side opposite the greater angle is longer than the side opposite the lesser angle.
