VERTEX/angles are measured in “degrees”
The Corners of a square are its vertex/angles
When two lines cross, they make vertex/angles
CONGRUENT means the “same”
CONGRUENT LINE SEGMENTS means two line segments are the same
CONGRUENT Vertex/Angles means two angles are the same
The Hershey & Crunch Bar are a Congruent size
A VERTICAL LINE goes up & down
The candy bars are vertical
A HORIZONTAL LINE goes “across” (left and right)
The candy bars are Horizontal
