Examples, videos, and solutions to help Grade 8 students learn to present informal arguments as to whether or not two triangles are similar and how to find lengths of corresponding sides of similar triangles.

Download Worksheets for Grade 8, Module 3, Lesson 11

• Students present informal arguments as to whether or not two triangles are similar.

• Students practice finding lengths of corresponding sides of similar triangles.

• Given just one pair of corresponding angles of a triangle as equal, use the side lengths along the given angle to
determine if triangles are in fact similar.

• Given similar triangles, use the fact that ratios of corresponding sides are equal to find any missing measurements.
