Students will be able to
- recognize that if two polygons are similar, then they contain angles of equal measure and corresponding sides that are in proportion,
- use proportionality of sides to prove similarity,
- use similarity to calculate unknown angle measures, scale factors, unknown side lengths, and perimeters,
- use similarity of polygons to solve real-world problems.
Students should already be familiar with
- finding a missing interior angle of a polygon using the sum of the angles of the polygon.
Students will not cover
- similarity problems involving area or volume,
- similarity with equations.
