Modeling Using Similarity

Curated and Reviewed by Lesson Planet

How do you find the lengths of items that cannot be directly measured? The 13th installment in a series of 16 has pupils use the similarity content learned in an earlier resource to solve real-world problems. Class members determine whether enough information is present to show triangles are similar and use properties of similarity to find unknown measurements.
