Unit of InstructionUnit 3: Similarity and Unit 2B
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.912.G-CO.3.10:  Prove theorems about triangles and use theorems about triangles to solve problems.

MAFS.912.G-SRT.1.3:  Use the properties of similarity transformations to establish the AA criterion for two triangles to be similar.

  • Students will learn which point of concurrency corresponds to which triangle segment.
  • Students will understand the Hinge Theorem.
  • Students will learn the Midsegment Theorem and how to apply it.
  • Students will learn the Triangle Proportionality Theorem and use it to find the measures of pieces of sides of triangles.
  • Students will learn how parallel lines cut transversals into proportional parts.
