#### Unit 6 Review: Similar Figures

After a short review of the material from the Similar Figures Unit, pupils work through 18 problems to further practice the skills from the unit. Scholars apply those skills in the application problems at the end of the review.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Similar Figures

Use some similar problems to find side lengths. Pupils learn the definition of similar figures and how it relates to corresponding angles and sides. Using the definition, individuals calculate the lengths of missing sides and practice...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Sphero Draw and Drive

Determine how far the ball rolled. The class watches a video of a person controlling a sphere rolling on the floor. Pupils develop some questions about the video and make estimates to the solutions of the questions. The teacher provides...
