Geometry Module 2, Topic C, Overview

Students in Library

Students learn what it means for two figures to be similar in general, and then focus on triangles and what criteria predict that two triangles will be similar. Length relationships within and between figures is studied closely and foreshadows work in Topic D.  The topic closes with a look at how similarity has been used in real world application.
