#### Discovering Dilations

Scale up the dilation factor. Using a dynamic geometry software program, classmates discover the relationship between a pre-image and its image after performing a dilation. Individuals create their own dilations and fellow class members...

Lesson Planet

#### The Voyage Scale Model Solar System

Young scientists learn how to select a scale factor for a large scale model. Then they figure the scale for each of the planets and the distance between them. Finally, they construct a giant scale model of the solar system and answer...

Lesson Planet

#### Verifying Dilation

Working in pairs, geometry young scholars will construct a dilation and consider the properties associated with the similar figures that are created to verify the properties of dilation. This activity can be done using dot or graph paper...

Lesson Planet

#### Dilations in the Plane

Tenth graders investigate dilations and explore the dilation transformation before investigating the properties of a dilation using Cabri Jr. High schoolers extend the concept of dilatation to the coordinate plane.

Lesson Planet

#### Dilation in the Coordinate Plane: Lesson

Multiply coordinates to either shrink or enlarge a figure. An informative segment of a geometry playlist introduces dilation on the coordinate plane. The dilations in the resource use the origin as the center of dilation, which makes...

Lesson Planet

#### Photocopy Faux Pas

Why did it not copy correctly? Using the tools in GeoGebra, pupils explore an image and its preimage. The learners determine what happened with the copying process and determine where they should position the preimage to obtain a...

Lesson Planet

#### Triangle Dilations

Stretch the class' knowledge of dilations. With the aid of the rubber band stretcher tool, learners perform dilations. They dilate the triangle by a whole number scale and a fractional scale from two centers of dilation.

Lesson Planet

#### Dilation of a Line: Factor of Two

A dilation of two doubles the length of a line segment, but what about a line? Young mathematicians investigate how a dilation through a point not on a line affects a line.

Lesson Planet

#### Dilation of a Line: Factor of One Half

What happens to a dilation when the scale factor is less than one? Learners show and then tell this in a short activity. They create a dilation from an off-line point using a scale factor of 0.5. The class then explains how the images...

Lesson Planet

#### Dilation of a Line: Center on the Line

Assessing progress is easy using a quick quiz focused on dilations with the center on the line! Geometry geniuses graph the images of points resulting from a dilation with a center point. Then, they must describe the relationship between...

Lesson Planet

#### Dilation of a Line Segment

It's a dilation sensation! Have your young mathematicians show what they know using a short, simple formative check about the dilation of a line segment. Geometry scholars try their hand at constructing a dilation, then must describe how...

Lesson Planet

#### Solving Problems with Circles and Triangles

After completing a task involving examining the ratio of areas of triangles and circles in a given figure, scholars examine sample responses to identify other strategies they could use to solve the problem.

Lesson Planet

#### A Scale Model Solar System

Between the time scientists discovered Pluto and reclassified it as a dwarf planet, it did not even make one full revolution around the sun. In two activities, scholars investigate scale models and their properties. Pupils find that it...

Lesson Planet

#### Analytic Geometry Study Guide

Are you looking for a comprehensive review that addresses the Common Core standards for geometry? This is it! Instruction and practice problems built specifically for standards are included. The material includes geometry topics from...

Lesson Planet

#### Performance Based Assessment Practice Test (Geometry)

The incredibly broad topic base of a geometry class makes full-length practice tests like this one, especially ones that include a number of open response questions, invaluable. Here the class can really get that hands-on experience...

Lesson Planet

#### End-of-Year Practice Test (Geometry)

This complete multiple choice and short answer practice end-of-year test for geometry offers a wealth of opportunities for customization. Offer it as a whole, to track progress or prepare the class for the format of the test, or sprinkle...

Lesson Planet

#### Similarity and Dilations - Discover Properties of Similar Figures

Learners investigate properties of similar figures. In this properties of similar figures lesson, pupils construct similar figures using Cabri Jr. They dilate their figure to create a similar one, and discuss the relationships between...

Lesson Planet

#### Dilations with Matrices

Examine dilation with matrices with your class. Learners write a conjecture for how the scale factor determines the size of an image. They then use their conjecture to write a matrix multiplication problem for the illustrated triangle...

Lesson Planet

#### Nested Similar Triangles

Nested triangles have been created so that they share a common vertex and vertex angle. Learners drag the endpoints of the side that is opposite the common angle to discover the conditions that make the nested triangles similar. When...

Lesson Planet

#### Angles and Similarity

Students identify triangles as similar or congruent. In this geometry lesson, students drag triangles around on the navigator to see the effect of different angles on the shape of the triangle. They discuss angle similarity and angle...

Lesson Planet

#### Corresponding Parts of Similar Triangles

Here is a instructional activity that has learners take a look at corresponding parts of similar triangles, ratios of similarity, reductions and enlargements. They'll manipulate the scale factor (r) to observe the changes in similar...
