Content Standard(s):
 Mathematics MA2015 (2016) Grade: 8 17 ) Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations; given two congruent figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the congruence between them. [8-G2] NAEP Framework NAEP Statement:: 4G2e: Match or draw congruent figures in a given collection. NAEP Statement:: 8G2e: Justify relationships of congruence and similarity and apply these relationships using scaling and proportional reasoning. NAEP Statement:: 8G3c: Represent problem situations with simple geometric models to solve mathematical or real-world problems. NAEP Statement:: 8G3f: Describe or analyze simple properties of, or relationships between, triangles, quadrilaterals, and other polygonal plane figures. Alabama Alternate Achievement Standards AAS Standard: M.AAS.8.17- Given a geometric figure and a vertical or horizontal translation and reflection across a vertical or horizontal line, identify the components (lines/sides, angles) of the two figures that are congruent (limited to non-equilateral rectangles and triangles).
