## Triangle Congruence

This unit covers the key aspects to prove triangles are congruent. Students will learn the five triangle congruence postulates to show triangles are congruent which are SSS, SAS, ASA, AAS and HL. Additionally the students will learn about CPCTC and how it is used in showing parts of triangles are congruent.
