PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Triangles - Congruent Triangles - Methods and Proofs Tas Cards

This is a set of 24 task cards is meant to review/reinforce the ideas of triangle congruency, methods of proving triangles congruent and congruent triangle proofs in different ways and at different student levels.

**Note: While this is designed for high school Geometry students it could be used with advanced 8th graders as well.

**The cards are written to cover the major topics and are broken into groupings. Topics covered are:
1. Identifying the corresponding congruent sides and angles (cards 1 – 4)
2. Marking pictures and writing congruence statements (cards 5 – 8)
3. Identifying the method (cards 9 – 12) or methods (cards 13 – 16) for proving triangles congruent
4. Identifying the missing piece to use a specific method (cards 17– 20).
5. Completing proofs by giving the missing statement or reason (cards 21 – 24).

Teaching Suggestions:
There are multiple ways to use these task cards. A few of them are:
***Pair students with a partner and have them pass the cards from pair to pair every 2 minutes.
***Separate the cards by concepts/difficulty and have students work in small groups depending on their abilities.
***Use the cards as part of a larger station activity.

I highly recommend printing multiple sets of task cards on card stock, laminating them and cutting them out to store in zip lock bags so that you have them for the next year/class. This ensures that you are not constantly needing to run a new set or giving up class time having the students cut them out!

There is also a typed answer key included!
