**Similar Polygons -- Review**

What are the properties of similar polygons? They have congruent angles. Their sides are proportional We can find missing measurement with similar polygons… SMAL~BIGE Find X and Y B E I G 90 ft. X Y S M A L 50º 130º 45 ft. 30 ft.

**So…why do we care about Similar Triangles?**

Triangles have special properties They have congruence shortcuts: SSS – “Side-Side-Side” SAS – “Side-Angle-Side” AAS – “Angle-Angle-Side” ASA- “Angle-Side-Angle” Could they have similarity shortcuts? What would the “Side” part of similarity shortcuts mean? “Side” in this case means that the corresponding sides in each triangle would have the same proportion.

4
Will just “Angle” Work ? Is knowing just one corresponding pair of congruent angles enough to prove similarity? Sketchpad—demonstration No, knowing just one corresponding pair of congruent angles is inconclusive to prove similarity. 48º B A C 48º D E F

5
Will “Side-Side” Work? Are two triangles similar if given that two sets of corresponding sides are proportional? Sketchpad example No, knowing that two triangles have two sets of corresponding side are proportional is inconclusive to prove similarity.

Investigations Start investigations individually, but share your results with your partner. As partners, come up with a clear and concise conjecture about each investigation. Start with the investigation that is next to your name. (You are still required to do all of them) Group Mitchell D., Allie, Jimmy M., Chris, Sarah, Ashlee, Mitch S. Start with investigation #1 Evan, Mike, Jim S., Tim, Alexander L., Ethan Start with investigation #2 Steven, Shristi, Deanna, Kiara, Alex C., Elijah Start with investigation #3

**Exit Slip Using the figure below answer the following questions:**

Prove that ∆ABC~∆DEC using one of the similarity short cuts. Quickly explain how you came to that conclusion. Find the value of X.

(AA, SSS, SAS). AA Similarity (Angle-Angle) If 2 angles of one triangle are congruent to 2 angles of another triangle, then the triangles are similar.
