We dove into the concept of similarity today with the first part of Lesson 9.2. We'll wrap it up Tuesday.

Homework: Finish Problem 2 #'s 1a and 1b in 9.2 & write a paragraph comparing and contrasting the terms congruent and similar. Be sure to discuss detailed characteristics like corresponding angles and corresponding sides. Be thorough in your analysis.

Also, because of the week being a bit mixed up between the test and a sub, I've decided to extend my accepting test corrections to Monday as I wasn't able to remind you all about it before today. If you see this make sure everyone else in the class logs on at some point this weekend so everyone is on the same page!
