    I see many comments in the Progressions and on the Blog about students knowing congruent sides, shapes, angles, etc. When should students know the formal term “congruent”?

    Students start to study congruence in earnest in Grade 8. I wouldn’t think they have to know the term before then (although of course it is not forbidden).
