Triangle Basics: Triangles consist of vertices, sides, and angles, labelled in a specific way.

Angle-Side-Angle (ASA) Construction: Start with the known side, then use a protractor to draw the two angles at each end. Where lines intersect is the third vertex.

Side-Side-Side (SSS) Construction: Draw one side, then use a compass to mark the lengths of the other two sides from each end, finding the intersection as the third vertex.

Side-Side-Angle (SSA) Construction: Be careful, this may create two possible triangles.
