CONGRUENT

TRIANGLES

Sections 4-2, 4-3, 4-5

Jim Smith JCHS

Warm Up

What is the same in these two triangles?

When we talk about congruent triangles,

we mean everything about them Is congruent.

All 3 pairs of corresponding angles are equal….

A

D

E

C

F

B

And all 3 pairs of corresponding sides are equal

Name the corresponding parts:

For us to prove that 2 people are identical twins, we don’t need to show that all “2000” body parts are equal. We can take a short cut and show 3 or 4 things are equal such as their face, age and height. If these are the same I think we can agree they are twins. The same

is true for triangles. We don’t need to prove all 6 corresponding parts are

congruent. We have 5 short cuts or methods.

SSS

If we can show all 3 pairs of corr.

sides are congruent, the triangles

have to be congruent.

SAS

Non-included

angles

Included

angle

Show 2 pairs of sides and the

included angles are congruent and

the triangles have to be congruent.

This is called a common side.

It is a side for both triangles.

We’ll use the reflexive property.

Which method can be used to

prove the triangles are congruent

HL ( hypotenuse leg ) is used

only with right triangles, BUT,

not all right triangles.

When Starting A Proof, Make The

Marks On The Diagram Indicating

The Congruent Parts. Use The Given

Info, Properties, Definitions, Etc.

We’ll Call Any Given Info That Does Not Specifically State Congruency

Or Equality A PREREQUISITE

SOME REASONS WE’LL BE USING
• DEF OF MIDPOINT
• DEF OF A BISECTOR
• VERT ANGLES ARE CONGRUENT
• DEF OF PERPENDICULAR BISECTOR
• REFLEXIVE PROPERTY (COMMON SIDE)
• PARALLEL LINES ….. ALT INT ANGLES

Team Challenge!

We have seven problems. We will be in teams and the team who scores the most points will get a prize!

The Rules:

I will pose a question and the first team to write the correct answer on their side of the board gets first chance to earn the point.

I will select a member of the team to explain how they got the correct answer to earn their team a point. Who will I call on?... YOU! 
