In this activity there are 14 triangles and students must match them into pairs that are similar.
Once they have matched them into pairs of similar triangles, they must then use the fact they are similar to work out the missing sides and angles.
Congruent Triangles Snap:
As above, there are 14 triangles and students must match them into pairs that are definitely congruent. They must then work out the missing sides and angles. As an extension, pupils could also use the sine and cosine laws to work out the missing sides and angles in the triangles. Answers for this are included.

I LOVE this activity! It is challenging but really fun. Appreciate the great graphics and the metric units and the directions that remind students what to look for when proving triangles congruent or similar.I cut the cards apart for students to use - it was easier for them to sort, then made a separate answer sheet for them. Highly recommend.
