In this unit students will learn about congruent and similar shapes. They will start by learning a definition of congruence and understanding the conditions under which triangles can be shown to be congruent, and then using this to solve angle problems. They will then go on to look at the definition of similar shapes, how to prove that two triangles are similar and the effect of the scale factor on the area and volume of similar shapes and solids.
