Similar Triangles & Intro to Proofs Editable Study Guide & Test (Unit 2 Part 1):
This 100% editable 5-page study guide and 100% editable 4-page test will determine if your students can construct basic geometric proofs, identify similar triangles, and identify types of angles.
Students must be able to construct these types of proofs:
-Algebraic Proofs with the Distributive Property
-Proof of the Vertical Angles Theorem (Vertical angles are congruent.)
-Proof of the Angle Sum Theorem (The sum of the interior angles of a triangle is 180 degrees.)
-Prove that Alternate Interior Angles are Congruent when Parallel Lines are Cut by a Transversal
-Prove that Corresponding Angles are Congruent when Parallel Lines are Cut by a Transversal
-Prove that Right Triangles are Similar Using an Altitude
-Prove that Triangles are Similar Using Corresponding Angles
Students must also be able to:
-Identify vertical angles, linear pairs, alternate interior angles, and corresponding angles
-Determine if triangles are similar (SSS, SAS, and AA) and write similarity statements
The proofs are written in a fill-in-the-blank format, with some of the blanks filled in already. Each blank in a proof is worth 1.5 points, but you have the option of changing the point values to suit your needs. A few of the questions on the test are worth 2 points. There is a short answer question worth 5 points at the end of the test that asks students to explain one of the topics on the test. There's also a bonus question. The test and study guide are very similar to each other. The short answer question and the bonus question exactly the same on the study guide and the quiz, but you have the option of changing these questions to suit your needs.
Both the test and study guide are 100% editable, which means you can change the images, numbers, words, formatting, point values, or anything else that you want to change about this quiz. You can change the size of all of the pictures, and you can change the names of the vertices of the shapes. I have "grouped" together most of the images and labels to make it easier for you to move them about the page.
This product includes one 100% editable study guide (Microsoft Word Document), one 100% editable test (Microsoft Word Document), pdf versions of the study guide and test, pdf versions of the answer keys, and a PowerPoint containing pictures of the test, study guide, and keys. The pdf version of the test, study guide, and keys is NOT editable. The PowerPoint file containing pictures of the test, study guide, and keys is NOT editable. If you choose to make changes to the test or study guide, you will have to insert your own images into the PowerPoint file. If you choose to make changes to the test or study guide, you will have to print and write your own answer key. When you purchase this product, you will receive a word document containing the editable version of the test; a word document containing the editable version of the study guide; a pdf containing the test, study guide, and keys; and a PowerPoint containing pictures of the test, study guide, and keys. Before purchasing this product, please review the preview file closely to make sure that the problems are appropriate for your students.
