Constructing Similar Triangles

1.) Move the slider to the right to construct a triangle similar to triangle ABC.
2.) Using the tools on the toolbar to compare the measure of the interior angles, side lengths, and areas of the two triangles. What do you observe?

Sorry, the GeoGebra Applet could not be started. Please make sure that Java 1.4.2 (or later) is installed and active in your browser (Click here to install Java now)

3.) Move the vertices of triangle ABC. Do your observations still hold?
4.) Make conjectures based on your observations and prove your conjectures.
