Lesson Plan #024
Date: Friday November 13th, 2015
Class: Geometry
Topic: Base angles of an isosceles triangle
Aim: What is the relationship between the base angles of an isosceles triangle?

What theorem have we just proven about the base angles of an isosceles triangle?
Theorem: If two sides of a triangle are congruent, the angles opposite those sides are congruent or the base angles of an
isosceles triangle are congruent.
What other parts are congruent?
Definition: A corollary is a theorem that can easily be deduced from another theorem. Since
bisector of the vertex angle of an isosceles triangle bisects the base.
Corollary: The bisector of the vertex angle of an isosceles triangle bisects the base.
Corollary: The bisector of the vertex angle of an isosceles triangle is perpendicular to the base.
Corollary: Every equilateral triangle is equiangular
Note: Differentiate between the definition of a midpoint and the Midpoint Theorem.
Definition of a midpoint – A point on a line segment that divides the segment into two
congruent segments.
Midpoint Theorem - A midpoint divides a line segment into two segments, each ½ the
length of the original segment.
Similarly distinguish between the definition of an angle bisector and the Angle Bisector
Theorem.
