Today, I’m going to begin jumping ahead and covering several main portions of Geometry, especially as my in class learning is about 7 chapters ahead. As I’ve always said about proofs, there are ‘infinite’ methods that can be used to achieve a desired solution. What I find most useful is proving triangle congruence. Once you prove triangles congruent, you can prove so many different relationships, like congruent segments, angles, and even aspects like corresponding arcs when we begin talking about circles. No matter what, this is a tactic you’ll want to know.
Proving two triangles congruent is really quite simple, and there are five separate methods that you can use depending on the information you are given.
Let’s get started.
