Lesson Summary:

The Congruent Triangles lesson explores how to identify if two triangles are identical or congruent. Congruent triangles have the same angle and side measurements, and their corresponding parts are congruent. To write the triangle's concurrency statement, use the triangle symbol and ensure that the order corresponds to the order of the triangles. Corresponding parts of congruent triangles are congruent, a principle abbreviated as CPCCC, which is used in geometry.

Lesson Description:

Learn how to determine if two triangles are congruent.
