Here is a display poster or print out for your learners showing the illustrated congruence criteria for triangles: SSS, ASA, SAS, AAS and RHS.

Congruence Criteria for Triangles

This resource provides a clear guide to the four criteria used to prove that two triangles are congruent (i.e., identical in shape and size).


Why is triangle congruence important?

Understanding congruence has real-world applications:

  • Construction: Ensuring stability and consistency in structures.
  • Design: Creating identical patterns and shapes.
  • Maths: A foundation for proofs and advanced geometry problems.


How can this resource help?

This resource simplifies the concept of triangle congruence:

  • Clear criteria: Explains SSS, SAS, ASA, and RHS criteria.
  • Visual examples: Diagrams illustrate each criterion.
  • Concise explanations: Provides easy-to-understand definitions.
  • Free PDF download: Offers a handy reference tool.

Benefits for learners:

  • Improves understanding of geometric proofs.
  • Develop problem-solving skills in geometry.
  • Provides a strong foundation for further geometry topics.

This resource is perfect for teachers introducing or reviewing triangle congruence. It's also a valuable tool for independent revision or for parents supporting their children's maths learning.
