Reasoning About Constructions

Unit 4: Triangles and Congruence
Lesson 6 of 11

Objective: SWBAT use conditions for triangle congruence to explain or make an informal argument about the properties of a figure. Students will understand how proving triangles congruent can be used as part of a strategy of discovery.

Big Idea: Students reason about the geometry behind straight-edge and compass drawings. Deductions about constructions!
