Congruent Segments

Resource ID#: 42292

Primary Type: Problem-Solving Task

This document was generated on CPALMS -

Students' first experience with transformations is likely to be with specific shapes like triangles, quadrilaterals, circles, and figures with symmetry. Exhibiting a sequence of transformations that shows that two generic line segments of the same length are congruent is a good way for students to begin thinking about transformations in greater generality.
