Unit 6, Lesson 13# Checking for Identical Triangles

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students use conditions that determine a unique triangle to determine when two triangles are identical. Students construct viable arguments to explain why the given information can or cannot give a triangle correspondence between identical triangles. Students must look at a pair of triangles and decide whether the triangles are identical based on what they know about conditions that determine unique triangles. A triangle drawn under a condition that is known to determine a unique triangle will be identical to the original triangle.
