SKILLS
(1) The student will be able to identify corresponding angles and sides based on congruence statements.
(2) The student will be able to develop and write congruence statements for two congruent triangles.
(3) The student will be able to determine if two triangles are congruent based on their corresponding parts. 

THE BIG IDEA
Congruence  Most all new relationships proven or established from this point forward come from establishing triangles are congruent and that congruent triangles have many congruent parts and pieces.

TRAPS & PITFALLS
No real traps or pitfalls here  not if you have introduced the previous concepts correctly.


PAST CONNECTIONS
Students will use the concepts covered in G.CO.4 and G.CO.5. The definitions and the composite transformations will link isometry to congruence.
FUTURE CONNECTIONS
This is the developing of the connection to congruence. The next few objectives will rely heavily on this definition of congruence.
