Tool Thumbnail

Go to: (opens a new window)

An interactive applet and associated web page that shows how right triangles that have the hypotenuse and one other leg the same length must be congruent. The applet shows two right triangles, one of which can be reshaped by dragging any vertex. The other changes to remain congruent to it, and the hypotenuse and leg are outlined in bold to show they are the same measure and are the elements being used to prove congruence.

The web page describes all this and has links to other related pages.

Applet can be enlarged to full screen size for use with a classroom projector. After use in the classroom, student can access it again from any web browser at home or in the library with no login required.
