The resource provides detailed explanations and examples to teach the topic of congruence. It covers the following areas: understanding the properties that determine congruence of triangles and recognising which transformations create congruent figures; constructing triangles using the conditions of congruence; and looking at the properties of quadrilaterals using congruence and angle properties. Students can use this resource independently or with peers to establish an understanding of congruence as they read through the explanations, examples and complete the questions.
