Proving Triangles are Congruent

SSS, SAS; ASA; AASCCSS: G.CO7

Standards for Mathematical Practices

• 1. Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them.

• 2. Reason abstractly and quantitatively. • 3. Construct viable arguments and critique the

reasoning of others.  • 4. Model with mathematics. • 5. Use appropriate tools strategically. • 6. Attend to precision. • 7. Look for and make use of structure. • 8. Look for and express regularity in repeated

reasoning.

CCSS:G.CO 7

• USE the definition of congruence in terms of rigid motions to SHOW that two triangles ARE congruent if and only if corresponding pairs of sides and corresponding pairs of angles ARE congruent.

ESSENTIAL QUESTION

• How do we show that triangles are congruent?

• How do we use triangle congruence to plane and write proves ,and prove that constructions are valid?

Objectives:

1. Prove that triangles are congruent using the ASA Congruence Postulate and the AAS Congruence Theorem

2. Use congruence postulates and theorems in real-life problems.

If

If three sides of one triangle are congruent to three sidesof a second triangle, then the two triangles are congruent.

Theorem 4.5: Angle-Angle-Side (AAS) Congruence TheoremYou are given that two angles of

∆ABC are congruent to two angles of ∆DEF. By the Third Angles Theorem, the third angles are also congruent. That is, B E. Notice that BC is the side included between B and C, and EF is the side included between E and F. You can apply the ASA Congruence Postulate to conclude that ∆ABC ∆DEF.

Note:

• You can often use more than one method to prove a statement. In Example 2, you can use the parallel segments to show that D C and A E. Then you can use the AAS Congruence Theorem to prove that the triangles are congruent.
