In this unit, students use dilations and rigid transformations to justify triangle similarity theorems including the Angle-Angle Triangle Similarity Theorem. Students explicitly build on their work with congruence and rigid motions, establishing that triangles are similar by dilating them strategically. The unit balances a focus on proof with a focus on using similar triangles to find unknown side lengths and angle measurements.
