T.i.P.S.

Students should use their previous knowledge about twodimensional shapes and their attributes from previous grade levels to identify corresponding sides and corresponding congruent angles of similar figures. Students should be able to express the relationships between the lengths of corresponding sides of similar figures using proportions.
