Congruent Shapes

Increase your students’ understanding of congruent shapes with this instructional video. Kids Academy and teacher Mike explain and define congruent shapes and then teacher Mike works to complete a worksheet exercise that illustrates this math skill.

In the video, the teacher tells students clearly that congruent means equal. When referring to shapes, congruent shapes are equal in size, shape, number of sides and angles. The video emphasizes that congruent doesn’t mean the same color.

The teacher then guides students to counting the sides of each shape on the worksheet and naming each shape.  The teacher also notes that sometimes students need to picture the shape turned to verify that one shape is congruent with another. In other words, can a shape be flipped or slid on top of another shape to show it is exactly the same?

Concise explanations and great visual instruction of the math concept makes this video a valuable resource to use in the classroom.

Great app
Wow! This app is really great. For the first time my kids actually enjoy learning math and reading. The games on Kids Academy are educational and really fun.
Daughter's favorite
Still a top favorite for our 7 year old. She loves earning her stars as she learns to trace letters and numbers. Coloring and the sounds are engaging and are on target for her age group and being Pre K.
Great app!
This app is wonderful for my 7 years old son! :) It focuses on basic reading, writing, and math skills. The reward system is great and consistent!
Such a great app!
This was a really fun way to get my kids to practice their math. I usually struggle to get them into it and Kids Academy makes it easy.
