Focus: Properties and Relationships

The student will determine congruence of segments, angles, and polygons. 
Essential Knowledge and Skills
  • Characterize polygons as congruent and noncongruent according to the measures of their sides and angles.
  • Determine the congruence of segments, angles, and polygons given their attributes.
  • Draw polygons in the coordinate plane given coordinates for the vertices; use coordinates to find the length of a side joining points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate. Apply these techniques in the context of solving practical and mathematical problems.†Revised March 2011
Essential Understandings
  • Given two congruent figures, what inferences can be drawn about how the figures are related?The congruent figures will have exactly the same size and shape.
  • Given two congruent polygons, what inferences can be drawn about how the polygons are related? Corresponding angles of congruent polygons will have the same measure. Corresponding sides of congruent polygons will have the same measure.
