The purpose of this lesson is to identify and use other triangle properties.
This lesson will address the following CCRS Standard(s) for Geometry:
- 8.G.5: Use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angles of triangles, above the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles. For example, arrange three copies of the same triangle so that the sum of the three angles appears to form a line, and give an argument in terms of transversals why this is so

In this lesson we have learned:
- Isosceles triangles have two congruent sides and two congruent angles
- The sum of the angles of a triangle is 1800
- The exterior angle of a triangle is equal to the sum of the opposite two angles
- When combined, the two shortest sides of a triangle are longer than the third (longest) side
