Week #January 11-15
Unit of InstructionUnit 3: Similarity
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.912.G-SRT.2.4: Prove theorems about triangles. (Theorems include: Triangle Proportionality Theorem or Side Splitter Theorem – a line parallel to one side of a triangle divides the other two proportionally.)

MAFS.912.G-SRT.2.5: Use congruence and similarity criteria for triangles to solve problems and to prove relationships in geometric figures.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria
  • apply theorems, postulates, or definitions to prove theorems about triangles and proportional parts of parallel lines, including:
    1. Triangle Proportionality Theorem- A line parallel to one side of a triangle divides the other two proportionally.
    2. Converse of Proportionality Theorem- If a line divides two sides of a triangle proportionally, then it is parallel to the third side
    3. Triangle Midsegment Theorem (side splitter theorem as applied to triangle) – a midsegment of a triangle is parallel to one side of a triangle and its length is one-half the length of that side.
  • use triangle similarity to solve problems
  • use triangle similarity to prove relationships in geometric figures.
