# Introductory congruence

This module from the AMSI 'The Improving Mathematics Education in Schools (TIMES) project is for teachers who wish to consolidate their content knowledge on the topic of congruence, including the four triangle tests. There are sections that provide history and context for the topic, as well as exercises and examples of how to present and explain the concepts to students.
