 # Congruence

## Transformations

Directions: Given triangle ABC with vertices (-8,2), (-2,2), and (-2, 8), create triangle DEF in quadrant one that uses a translation, rotation, and reflection (in any order) to take that triangle to triangle ABC and show congruence. Source: Jon Henderson

## Line of Reflections on Isosceles Triangles

Directions: How many ways can you determine the location of the line of reflection for isosceles triangle XYZ that maps Point X to Point Z? Source: Irvine Math Project, Nanette Johnson, and Robert Kaplinsky.

## Create Squares

Directions: Using the digits 0 to 9 at most one time each, fill in the boxes to create a square with one of the vertices at (2,3). Source: John Mahlstedt
