This is a part of the interactive online tutorial for Geometry learning with the help of audio visual lessons. It has been created to help you learn the concept, perception with explanations and includes solution to practice questions from the topic of ‘Congruence and Similarity’. The mini-lessons here include: Getting started, Similar Polygons, Congurent and Similar Triangle Theorem.

Use geometric descriptions of rigid motions to transform figures and to predict the effect of a given rigid motion on a given figure; given two figures, use the definition of congruence in terms of rigid motions to decide if they are congruent.

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.

Explain how the criteria for triangle congruence (ASA, SAS, and SSS) follow from the definition of congruence in terms of rigid motions.
