### Congruent Triangles:

Congruent Triangles

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Congruent Triangles

### PowerPoint Presentation:

The same shape but different in size

Similar Trianges

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Similar Triangles

### Similar Triangles :

Similar Triangles have the same shape, but the size may be different . symbol ( ~ )

### Instructions::

Instructions: Class will be divided into three groups by color coding Each group will be assign to draw a triangle with specific measurement in inches using a meterstick a. Group1 will make ∆ABC with AB is the longest side b. Group 2 will make ∆DEF with DE is the longest side c. Group 3 will make ∆GHI with GH is the longest side 3. The group will assign their leader to measure each angles. 4. Make a proportion by sharing the work of each group a. Group 1 will take the work of group 2 b. group 2 will take the work of group 3 c. group 3 will take the work of group 1 Then observe the relationship of their sides and angles 5. The group leader and the assistant leader will be the one to present their work.

### Proving Similar Triangles:

Proving Similar Triangles ∆ABC ∆DEF ∆ GHI Measures of Corresponding Sides AB = BC = AC = DE = EF = DF = GH = HI = GI = Measures of Corresponding Angles m ∠ A = m ∠ B = m ∠ C = m ∠ D = M ∠ E = m ∠ F = m ∠ G = m ∠ H = m ∠ I = 30 18 24 20 12 16 10 6 8 35° 35° 35° 55 ° 55 ° 55 ° 90° 90° 90°

### COROLLARY: Two triangles similar to a third triangle are similar to each other:

COROLLARY: Two triangles similar to a third triangle are similar to each other ∆ABC ~ ∆DEF ∆DEF ~ ∆GHI ∆GHI ~ ∆ABC

### Properties of Similar Triangles:

Properties of Similar Triangles Corresponding angles are congruent (same measure) Corresponding sides are all in the same proportion
