Congruence Criteria for Triangles—SAS

Looking for a different approach to triangle congruence criteria? Employ transformations to determine congruent triangles. Learners list the transformations required to map one triangle to the next. They learn to identify congruence if rigid transformations can be identified, which leads to formal proofs using the SAS theorem.
