MAFS.912.G-CO.3.10
Prove theorems about triangles; use theorems about triangles to solve problems. (Theorems include: measures of interior angles of a triangle sum to 180°; triangle inequality theorem; base angles of isosceles triangles are congruent; the segment joining midpoints of two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side and half the length; the medians of a triangle meet at a point.)
MAFS.912.G-SRT.1.1
Verify experimentally the properties of dilations given by a center and a scale factor:
a. A dilation takes a line not passing through the center of the dilation to a parallel line, and leaves a line passing through the center unchanged.
b. The dilation of a line segment is longer or shorter in the ratio given by the scale factor.
MAFS.912.G-SRT.1.2
Given two figures, use the definition of similarity in terms of similarity transformations to decide if they are similar; explain using similarity transformations the meaning of similarity for triangles as the equality of all corresponding pairs of angles and the proportionality of all corresponding pairs of sides.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

• define similarity as a composition of rigid motions followed by dilations in which angle measure is preserved and side length is proportional.
• identify corresponding sides and corresponding angles of similar triangles.
• demonstrate that in a pair of similar triangles, corresponding angles are congruent (angle measure is preserved) and corresponding sides are proportional.
• determine that two figures are similar by verifying that angle measure is preserved and corresponding sides are proportional.

• use dilations to prove similar figures.
• define dilation. (clarify that dilations are not rigid motions).
• use real-world applications of dilations.
• perform a dilation with a given center and scale factor on a figure in the coordinate plane.
• verify that when a side passes through the center of dilation, the side and its image lie on the same line.
• verify that corresponding sides of the pre-image and images are parallel.
• verify that a side length of the image is equal to the scale factor multiplied by the corresponding side length of the pre-image.

• solve problems using definitions, theorems, postulates, about triangles, including:
a) Hinge Theorem.
b) The medians of a triangle meet at a point.
