3.13 - Congruence
The student will
- identify and describe congruent and noncongruent figures.
- So that I can understand that some shapes are the same even when their position or location changes
- So that I can create a matching copy of a shape or image
UNDERSTANDING THE STANDARD
figures have the same size and shape. Noncongruent figures do not have exactly
the same size and shape. Opportunities for exploring figures that are
congruent and/or noncongruent can best be accomplished by using physical
- Congruent plane figures remain congruent even if they are in different spatial orientations.
- Figures that are congruent or noncongruent may be identified by using direct comparisons and/or tracing procedures.
The student will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to
- Identify examples of congruent and noncongruent figures.
- Determine and explain why plane figures are congruent or noncongruent.
