Lesson Planet

#### Coordinate Plane Transformations

Geometric transformations are explored by high schoolers. They will create a set of instructions for plotting coordinates representing an original transformation of a real-world figure. These instructions are shared with middle...

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. Students extend the concept of dilatation to the coordinate plane.

#### What is a Transformation?

A transformation is the process of changing the graph of a figure or a shape. The instructor introduces the four most common transformations: reflection, dilation, rotation, and translation. So watch as she draws the transformations on a...

Lesson Planet

#### Transformations

In this transformations worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 27 various types of problems that include similar figures and justifying answers. First, they dilate the shape shown using a zoom factor from the origin. Then, students...

Lesson Planet

#### How Do You Make a Figure Larger Using a Dilation?

A dilation increases or decreases the size of a figure. In this lesson the teacher shows you how to use a scale factor of three to dilate the given figure. She identifies the ordered pairs, multiplies them by three, plots the new...

#### Visual Analogies

Here are four questions which require learners to examine four pairs of visual analogies and then choose a figure that completes a missing part of an analogy that is the same as the one shown. They then get to create their own visual...

Lesson Planet

#### Dilations and Similarity

In this dilations and similarity worksheet, pupils solve 10 different problems that include various dilations. First, they determine the scale factor of dilations found in the illustrated graphs. Then, everyone determines the coordinates...

Lesson Planet

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

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

Lesson Planet

#### Exploring Quadratic Data Using Translation and Dilation

Mathematicians analyze the vertex form of a parabola and find an approximate fit of a model. They explain the quadratic parabola function and its properties by developing quadratic models. They use translation and dilation to change the...

Lesson Planet

#### Transformations

Students view a linked PowerPoint presentation that illustrates 5 vocabulary words related to transformations of geometric shapes. Students complete one vocabulary web for each word, the format for this is linked to the lesson.

Lesson Planet

#### Scale Factor

Students investigate scale factors of figures. In this scale factors of figures lesson, students find the scale factor given its' original perimeter and dilated perimeter. Students find the area of an image given the scale factor and...

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

#### Transformations and Matrices

There are four activities in this extensive lesson covering the identity matrix and scaling, the linear representation of translations, the linear representation of rotations, and reflections. In small groups, they use the Cabri II...

#### Six Exercise Sets on Transformations

Middle and high schoolers solve fifteen problems from six exercise sets covering transformations, reflections, rotations, and enlargements. The solutions are provided.

Lesson Planet

#### Geometry: Second Semester Final Exam

High schoolers complete problems dealing with topics covered during the second semester. They find the scale factor of a dilation, identify the rotation and reflection of figures, identify the angle measure of a sector, add matrices, and...

Lesson Planet

#### Transformations and Tessellations

Shape shifters explore transformation through the construction of patterns on a TI handheld. In this math lesson, students investigate and apply their knowledge of reflection, translation, rotation, and dilation. This assignment requires...

Lesson Planet

#### Transformations

Eighth graders define the following words: transformation, reflection, rotation, dilation, and translation upon viewing a PowerPoint presentation. They then create vocabulary webs to enhance understanding of concept.

Lesson Planet

#### Transformation of a Triangle Worksheet

With this one-page, straightforward learning exercise, nascent geometers reflect, translate, rotate, and dilate a right triangle. No solutions are provided.

Lesson Planet

Lesson Planet

#### Transformational Geometry

Students work in cooperative groups to manipulate a figure on the computer to demonstrate different types of geometric transformations. They generate formulas that can be used to translate different figures.

Lesson Planet

#### Dilation on a Coordinate Plane

In this geometry activity, students dilate a quadrilateral by first determining the points, applying the scale factor, and redrawing the transformed image. There is 1 shape to transform.

Lesson Planet

#### Studying the Properties of Figures Created through a Dilation

In this geometry instructional activity, students walk through several exercises to determine the effect of dilation when the scale factor is less than 1, greater than 1, or equal to 1 as well as the effect on the lengths, area, and...
