After working through Triangle similarity and postulates, my original plan was to get moving with problem-solving and equations involving similar triangle setups. However, given the confusion or difficulty I noticed students were having, I decided to pause and do a recap on proportions and solving with fractions (something they consistently have trouble with). This could bolster their confidence with the solving piece. Additionally, I decided to use physical demonstrations and cutouts to convince students that these are indeed similar by rotating/transforming.
