# 7th Grade Math / Lesson 9: Congruent

 CONGRUENT FIGURES What will we be learning in this lesson? In this lesson, you will learn about congruent shapes. Vocabulary words are found in this purple color throughout the lesson. Remember to put these in your notebook.

 Congruent Figures Congruent figures are those that have the same exact size and same exact shape. The two figures are exactly the same. These two shapes are congruent. The only difference between them is that one shape has been turned (rotated). All angles and all sides measure to be exactly the same.

 Congruent Figures When you have congruent figures, the corresponding sides are marked with slash marks. Corresponding sides are the sides that match from one shape to the other. The sides that match are indicated by the same number of slash marks. The sides with one slash mark match each other. The sides with two slash marks match each other. The sides with three slash marks match each other

 Congruent Figures Congruent shapes also have corresponding angles. Corresponding angles are the angles that match from one shape to the other. Corresponding angles can also be represented by the slash marks through the angles. With these congruent figures, the corresponding angles are     A and J    B and K    C and L

 Can you identify congruent figures? Can you label corresponding sides and angles of congruent figures? Go back to the classroom to get to your homework and any other items you need to attend to.
