GeoGebra Book: Similarity, Right Triangles, and Trigonometry (SRT) Cluster

MAFS.912.G-SRT.1.1 Verify experimentally the properties of dilations given by a center and a scale factor: A dilation takes a line not passing through the center of the dilation to a parallel line, and leaves a line passing through the center unchanged.The dilation of a line segment is longer or shorter in the ratio given by the scale factor. MAFS.912.G-SRT.1.2 Given two figures, use the definition of similarity in terms of similarity transformations to decide if they are similar; explain using similarity transformations the meaning of similarity for triangles as the equality of all corresponding pairs of angles and the proportionality of all corresponding pairs of sides. MAFS.912.G-SRT.1.3 Use the properties of similarity transformations to establish the AA criterion for two triangles to be similar. MAFS.912.G-SRT.2.4 Prove theorems about triangles. Theorems include: a line parallel to one side of a triangle divides the other two proportionally, and conversely; the Pythagorean Theorem proved using triangle similarity. MAFS.912.G-SRT.2.5 Use congruence and similarity criteria for triangles to solve problems and to prove relationships in geometric figures. MAFS.912.G-SRT.3.6 Understand that by similarity, side ratios in right triangles are properties of the angles in the triangle, leading to definitions of trigonometric ratios for acute angles. MAFS.912.G-SRT.3.7 Explain and use the relationship between the sine and cosine of complementary angles. MAFS.912.G-SRT.3.8 Use trigonometric ratios and the Pythagorean Theorem to solve right triangles in applied problems.
