Similar Triangles Project Essay
Similar Triangles Project
Introduction:
In this project, I found the height of an object I chose based on how tall one of my partners is, how far away she is from the mirror, and how far the mirror was from the base of one of the objects. From there I set up a proportion and solved for X. X represented the unknown height of the chosen object. Once I figured this out I then converted to feet and compared that to my partners height to see if it was a reasonable or realistic height.
TwoColumn Proof:
Statements Reasons  The triangles are right triangles Given—Mr. Visser told us that we can assume this  Triangles are similar If there exists a correspondence between the vertices of two   triangles such that two angles of one triangle are congruent to   the corresponding angles of the other, then the triangles are   similar. 
Conclusion:
In this project I learned that you can prove similarity in triangles even if you don’t know all of the angle measures and side measures. I thought it was interesting how in all of my objects my estimation on ratio’s from Dannie to the object, were usually fairly close to what it actually was. I liked in this project how we got to chose the things that we measure so there is variability between each group’s projects. One obstacle I ran into was the two column proof because at first I just couldn’t think of how to start, then I just tried the first thing that came to mind, and it ended up helping.
