# Access Point #: MAFS.912.G-SRT.1.AP.3aArchived Access Point

Apply the angle-angle (AA) criteria for triangle similarity on two triangles.
Clarifications:

#### Essential Understandings

Concrete:

• Given two triangles, match the corresponding angles on each triangle.
• Mark the pieces of the triangle that are similar.
Representation:
• Using graphs or geometry software, mark the pieces of the triangle that are similar.
• Given two triangles, determine if the triangles are similar using AA.
General Information
Number: MAFS.912.G-SRT.1.AP.3a
Category: Access Points
Date Adopted or Revised: 07/14
Cluster: Understand similarity in terms of similarity transformations. (Geometry - Major Cluster)

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
