Congruent Triangles – Day 2. Congruence & Triangles. Warm-Up - Artists. - PowerPoint PPT Presentation
Citation preview
Warm-Up - Artists• Vito Acconci is a
popular American sculptor and artist. One of his furniture creations called the Name Calling Chair uses a variety of geometric shapes, such as squares and triangles. The back of the chair is shown in the diagram.
• What do you know about angles FCB and CFE?• Are triangles ABC and DEF similar?• Are triangles ABC and DEF congruent?
Congruent Triangles – Day 2Congruence & Triangles
