  • why do i need to know if two figures are congruent?
  •  

  • construction- you can use congruent figures in construction a lot, for example. If you are

  • building a bridge you would use congruent triangles to keep the bridge stable and strong, or
  •  

  • if you are building something the two opposite sides have to be congruent or it will be lop-sided.
  •  

  • machinists need to know this because they often make specialized parts or one-of-a-kind items for companies sthat produce everytlhing from carts to computers.

    These are also things I always think about when i think about using geometrty in real life.

    I never would have thought you would need to know two sides congruent to make it stable!!!!

    Construction is always used with geometry, so it doesn’t surprise me that that was on there. Buildings do need to have congruent figures.

  4. Emma Lee Says:

    This all makes sense to me. The machinists thing was kind of new though.

  5. Luke Volz Says:

    A lot of geometry is used in this kind of thing. Construction uses a lot of geometry. It makes a lot of sense and it is pretty interesting.

  6. Abby Hess Says:

    Construction is a good example of real life geometry. Zach’s real life example shows a specific part that we see everyday. It makes you see the little things all around that are related to geometry.
