### Vocabulary for Chapter 4 - Congruent Triangles (part 2)

TermDefinition
Auxiliary Line A line drawn in a figure to aid in a proof.
Congruent Polygons Two polygons whose corresponding sides and angles are congruent.
Corresponding Angles Angles in the same position in two different polygons that have the same number of angles.
Corresponding Sides Sides in the same position in two different polygons that have the same number of sides.
CPCTC An abbreviation for the phrase "Corresponding Parts of Congruent Triangles are Congruent". It can be used as a justification in a proof after you have proven two triangles congruent.
Included Angle An angle formed by two adjacent sides of a polygon (aka an angle in-between two sides).
Included Side The common side of two consecutive angles in a polygon (aka a side in-between two angles).
Side-Side-Side (SSS) Congruence Postulate If three sides of one triangle are congruent to three sides of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
Side-Angle-Side (SAS) Congruence Postulate If two sides and the included angle of one triangle are congruent to two sides and the included angle of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
Angle-Side-Angle (ASA) Congruence Postulate If two angles and the included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the included side of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
Angle-Angle-Side (AAS) Congruence Theorem If two angles and a nonincluded side of one traingle are congruent to the corresponding angles and nonincluded side of another triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
Hypotenuse-Leg (HL) Congruence Theorem If the hypotenuse and a leg of a right triangle are congruent to the hypotenuse and a leg of another right triangle, then the triangles are congruent.
Isosceles Triangle Theorem If two sides of a triangle are congruent, then the angles opposite the sides are congruent.
Converse of Isosceles Triangle Theorem If two angles of a triangle are congruent, then the sides opposite those angles are congruent.
Vertex Angle The angle formed by the legs of an isosceles triangle. It is located across from the base.
Base Angles The two congruent angles of an isosceles triangle. The base is located between them.
Base The noncongruent side opposite the vertex angle.
Legs The two congruent sides of an isosceles triangle. The vertex angle is located between them.
Equilateral Triangle Corollary If a triangle is equilateral, then it is equiangular.
Equiangular Triangle Corollary If a triangle is equiangular, then it is equilateral.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
