Learning Target:
•I can identify congruent OVERLAPPING
triangles
•Success Criteria: I can prove triangles
congruent using overlapping parts.
E
When triangles overlap it is sometimes
difficult to see the corresponding
congruent parts.
The triangles may have sides or angles
in common. The best way to find
the necessary parts is to :
Example #1
Separate and redraw  DFG &  EHG.
Identify any shared parts.
