Congruence and Coincidence

Unit 3: Congruence and Rigid Motions
Lesson 2 of 17

Objective: SWBAT use a rigorous definition of congruence--aided by tracing paper, compass, etc.--to identify congruent figures. Students will understand the meaning of congruence in terms of superimposing figures with rigid motions.

Big Idea: Hands-on activities reinforce the connection between congruence and coincidence, helping students to go beyond "same shape, same size".
