# Ch 42: 6th-8th Grade Geometry: Symmetry, Similarity & Congruence

The online video lessons in the Symmetry, Similarity and Congruence chapter showcase the characteristics of various geometric shapes. In addition to helping your 6th - 8th grade students identify congruence and similarity in geometric shapes, the lessons will expand their knowledge of parallel and perpendicular lines. After watching the lessons, your students can take the self-assessment quizzes.

## 6th-8th Grade Geometry: Symmetry, Similarity and Congruence - Chapter Summary

Use the video lessons in the Symmetry, Similarity and Congruence chapter to ensure that your 6th - 8th grade students know how to identify different types of lines, construct transverse lines or find the line of symmetry of a parabola. Your students can practice constructing geometric shapes with the help of a straight edge, a compass and a pencil. Test their understanding by administering the chapter examination.

## Chapter Lessons and Objectives

Lesson Objective
What is a Line of Symmetry in Geometric Shapes? This lesson teaches students to identify the line of symmetry in geometric shapes such as squares, triangles and rectangles.
Congruence in Geometric Shapes Teachers explain the meaning of congruence, and students learn to determine if various geometric shapes are congruent.
Similarity in Geometric Shapes Students are taught to recognize the similarity of different shapes.
Parallel, Perpendicular and Transverse Lines Teachers explain the differences between perpendicular, transverse and parallel lines.
Identifying Parallel Lines in Geometric Shapes In this lesson, students are taught to recognize parallel lines in shapes that include rectangles and parallelograms.
Constructing Perpendicular Lines in Geometry This lesson focuses on the drawing of perpendicular lines through the use of a pencil, a straight edge and a compass.
