Unit 4: Geometry

1. Triangles

Definitions, examples, counter examples of similar triangles.

  • (Prove) If a line is drawn parallel to one side of a triangle to intersect the other two sides in distinct points, the other two sides are divided in the same ratio.
  • (Motivate) If a line divides two sides of a triangle in the same ratio, the line is parallel to the third side.
  • (Motivate) If in two triangles, the corresponding angles are equal, their corresponding sides are proportional and the triangles are similar.
  • (Motivate) If the corresponding sides of two triangles are proportional, their corresponding angles are equal and the two triangles are similar.
  • (Motivate) If one angle of a triangle is equal to one angle of another triangle and the sides including these angles are proportional, the two triangles are similar.
  • (Motivate) If a perpendicular is drawn from the vertex of the right angle of a right triangle to the hypotenuse, the triangles on each side of the perpendicular are similar to the whole triangle and to each other.
  • (Motivate) The ratio of the areas of two similar triangles is equal to the ratio of the squares of their corresponding sides.

2. Circles

Tangent to a circle at point of contact

  • (Prove) The tangent at any point of a circle is perpendicular to the radius through the point of contact.
  • (Prove) The lengths of tangents drawn from an external point to a circle are equal.
