If at First You're Not the Same, Try Triangles! (Part 1)

For Teachers 11th - 12th Standards
Congruent sides + congruent angles = congruent triangles. Scholars first create several triangles that satisfy given conditions using straws. They investigate the triangles to see which are congruent, and then they define what it means...
