Similar Figures

A triangle is a triangle is a triangle…but not all triangles are similar! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby shape your knowledge of similar figures. Discover how the concept of geometric similarity is more complicated than just two shapes that look alike. Explore how congruent angles and proportional sides are the key links between similar figures of all shapes and sizes, from triangles to rectangles to pentagons and beyond. And learn how similar figures can help us measure objects that are way too big to measure directly!
