Concepts of congruence and similarity equally play a major role in
terms of properties of triangles and are widely used to cover a variety
of proofs. For this reason, each one contains special principles and
rules which shall be presented analytically below.
Triangles that are congruent have exactly the same size and shape. In
order to establish congruence of two given triangles, mathematicians

This semester you will not sit a written test in the exams period of June 2020. Instead, you will have to submit the following assignment through an email by May 31 2020.  There won’t be an extension.

“Select two different topics that would be relevant to your School of Technology & Engineering, possibly combined with topics taken from Schools of different sciences. a) Write two paragraphs according to the theory of Structuring paragraphs, followed by an extensive analysis of all the elements of academic language being used (topic sentence, controlling idea, primary and secondary supports, conclusion, method of development, pattern, cohesion devices, types of sentences, features of academic writing). b) Paraphrase one of your paragraphs and summarize the other one. You should also refer to your sources and bibliography while applying the strategies of summarizing and paraphrasing, thus avoiding plagiarism. Try to produce your own written texts. Copying somebody else’s original work will be considered a fail.
