Triangle Congruence Theorems (Hypotenuse-Leg)

Triangle Congruence Theorems (Hypotenuse-Leg)

Description:
  1.  

    Present how if the hypotenuse and a leg of a right triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and a leg of a second right triangle, then the two triangles are congruent.

  2.  

    Review how to use the corresponding sides and corresponding angles of two congruent triangles to write a congruence statement (ex ΔABC ΔDEF).

  3.  

    Provide examples that demonstrate how to prove two triangles congruent using the HL triangle congruence theorem.

 

This packet should help a learner seeking to understand how to use the triangle congruence theorem (Hypotenuse-Leg) to prove triangles congruent.
