Lesson: Congruence and Similarity
1.) Display two different shapes: Triangle and Square
2.) Display a square and a rectangle
3) Display two circles that are exactly the same
Quick Write: ( 2 minutes for each)
Are the two figures are the same? Do they have anything in common? Please explain.
Students should infer that the shapes are different because they have a different amount of sides and angles and look different. Cirlces are the exact same. The square and the rectangle are similar, but not the same.
