2Naming FiguresTo name a polygon, write the vertices in consecutive order. For example, you can name polygon PQRS as QRSP or SRQP, but not as PRQS.In a congruence statement, the order of the vertices indicates the corresponding parts.
3Naming & Comparing Polygons DCBEList vertices in order, either clockwise or counterclockwise.When comparing 2 polygons, begin at corresponding vertices; name the vertices in order and; go in the same direction.By doing this you can identify corresponding parts.DCBAEPIJKHD corresponds to IAE corresponds to PHIJKPH
4Name corresponding parts Name all the angles that correspond:PIJKHADCBE D corresponds to I C corresponds to J B corresponds to K A corresponds to P E corresponds to HDCBAEIJKPHName all the segments that correspond:How many corresponding sides are there?DC corresponds to IJCB corresponds to JKBA corresponds to KPAE corresponds to PHED corresponds to HIHow many corresponding angles are there?55

6Polygon Congruence Postulate If each pair of corresponding angles is congruent, and each pair of corresponding sides is congruent, then the two polygons are congruent.
7Congruence Statements Given: These polygons are congruent.Remember, if they are congruent, they are EXACTLY the same.That means that all of the corresponding angles are congruent and all of the corresponding sides are congruent.DO NOT say that ‘all the sides are congruent” and “all the angles are congruent”, because they are not.CDBAGHFECONGRUENCE STATEMENTABCD = EFGH~
9Helpful HintWhen you write a statement such as ABC DEF, you are also stating which parts are congruent.

12Similar PolygonsCorresponding parts must also be written in order for similar polygons.Following the order of the statement allows you to set up proportions to solve for missing parts.
