Background Tutorials

Determine the coordinates of a point that is a given fractional distance less than one from one end of a line segment to the other in one- and two-dimensional coordinate systems, including finding the midpoint

If two figures have the same size and shape, then they are congruent. The term congruent is often used to describe figures like this. In this tutorial, take a look at the term congruent!

Apply the definition of similarity in terms of a dilation to identify similar figures and their proportional sides and the congruent corresponding angles

Looking at two figures that are the same shape and have the same angle measurements? You have similar figures! Learn all about it in this tutorial!

Verify theorems about the relationships in triangles, including proof of the pythagorean theorem, the sum of interior angles, base angles of isosceles triangles, midsegments, and medians, and apply these relationships to solve problems

Angles are a fundamental building block for creating all sorts of shapes! In this tutorial, learn about how an angle is formed, how to name an angle, and how an angle is measured. Take a look!
