# Are the Triangles Similar? Task Assessment

## Mathematics Standards:

- HSG-CO.A: Experiment with transformations in the plane
- HSG-CO.B: Understand congruence in terms of rigid motions

1) Given Points

*A*,*B*, and*C*are not collinear, forming angle*BAC*. Complete the following instructions in the applet below to make*ABC*and*APQ*:- Put point
*P*on ray*AB*, but**not**between point*A*and*B*. - Create segment
*BC*. - Put a line that passes through point
*P*and is parallel to segment*BC*. - The line intersects ray
*AC*at point*Q*.
