Unit 5 Notes: Congruence and Triangles

This packet is your notes for all of Unit 5. It is expected you will take good notes and work the examples in class. It is expected that you bring your packet to class every day and do not lose it! Should you be absent, it is expected that you get the notes and examples you missed. This packet will be collected and graded on the day of the Unit 5 Test.

5.2: Classifying Triangles Warm up:

State whether the angles are acute, right, obtuse, or straight.

A triangle is a figure formed when _____ _____________________ are connected by segments. A triangle

can be classified by its __________ and by its ___________.

Parts of a triangle:

Vertex (plural: vertices) - Each of three _________ joining the _________ of a triangle.

Adjacent sides – Two sides sharing a common _________________.

Classified by Angles

Acute – all acute angles

Classified by Sides

Scalene – no congruent sides

Isosceles – at least 2 sides congruent Equilateral – all sides congruent
