Vocab

SSS (side-side-side) congruence

Included angle

SAS (side-angle-side) congruence

• Draw a triangle, measure its lengths

• Draw another triangle in a different “manner” using the same length sides.

• Are the 2 triangles different? Are they the same shape, same size?

They’re

Congruent!

• If 3 sides are congruent to other 3 sides

→ ∆’s congruent bySSS (side-side-side)

Rule

• A triangle with a 900 angle. Measure only the 2 sides that touch the 900

• Draw another triangle in a different “manner” using the 2 measured lengths and 900 angle between them

• Are the 2 triangles different? Are they the same shape, same size?

They’re

Congruent!

• If 2 sides and the included angle between them are congruent to other 2 sides and the included angle

→ ∆’s congruent by SAS (side-angle

side) Rule

→ Look for SAS – list S or A in order

• Go in a circle around triangle naming markings or measures in order (S or A)

• ∆’s congruent if :

• SSS : all 3 sides

• SAS : an angle between (included) 2 sides

• ASA : a side between 2 angles

• AAS : a side after 2 angles

NEW ONES!

• Use facts/rules to find any missing angle or side measures first

• Is a side congruent to itself?

• Can you use any angle facts to find missing angle measures?

• Look for parallel lines

• Which side is included between R and F in∆FTR?

• 2. Which angles in ∆ STU include ?

• Tell whether you can prove the triangles congruent by ASA or

• AAS. If you can, state a triangle congruence and the postulate

• or theorem you used. If not, write not possible.
