Congruent, Similar, or Neither - Practice / Review:
This activity will help your students practice identifying congruent and similar figures based on a variety of different given input information. They will decide whether each set of information represents a pair of similar figures, a pair of congruent figures, or neither. The 40 cards contain a mix of diagrams, figures on a coordinate plane, and word explanations. (Students must already know triangle sum theorem, basic transformations, properties of polygons, and the criteria for congruent and similar.)
Here is what's included:
- 3 quick - fold pockets to hold sorted cards
- 40 sorting cards (mix of diagrams, figures on a coordinate plane, and word explanations)
- 3 "answer cards" that list which cards should be in each pocket
- optional "sorting mat" to offer an alternative format (great for group work or learning stations)
Students will cut out and sort the cards into the correct pocket. The pockets fit well on an interactive notebook page.
Then, hand out the answer/check cards. After students have verified that their cards were sorted correctly, the answer cards can be tucked into the back of each pocket. Students can re-do the activity as a review at any time.
