Geometry 7-4 Similarity in Right Triangles

| 27 Questions

Note from the author:

A complete formative lesson with embedded slideshow, mini lecture screencasts, checks for understanding, practice items, mixed review, and reflection. I create these assignments to supplement each lesson of Pearson's Common Core Edition Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry courses. See also mathquest.net and twitter.com/mathquestEDU.
