Triangle Construction Site

Unit 4: Triangles and Congruence
Lesson 1 of 11

Objective: Students will be able to understand why it is possible to prove that two triangles are congruent without knowing the measures of all sides and angles. Students will be able to determine whether it is possible to construct more than one triangle given a set of side and angle measurements.

Big Idea: Students use an online simulation to build triangles from sets of parts and discover minimum conditions for proving triangles congruent.
