Working in pairs, geometry students 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 and rulers, compasses, and protractors, geoboards, or dynamic geometry software.

Transformations Using Matrices
In this transformations activity, 10th graders solve and complete 16 different types of problems. First, they graph the image of the figure using the transformation given. Then, students find the coordinates of the vertices of each figure after the given transformation.

Graphic Art Contest
Creativity is endless when your mathematicians take a simple image and use transformations to create their own poster inspired by geometry. While certain rotations and reflections are required, learners will be able to create ten new images by flipping, moving, spinning, and zooming their original using Word.

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 graph.

Dilations in the Plane
In this geometry lesson, learners collect and analyze data as they investigate relationships between the pre-image and the image of a triangle. They investigate angle measures, side lengths, and the dilation factor. The dynamic nature of Cabri Jr.

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 general parabola.

Studying the Properties of Figures Created through a Dilation
In this geometry activity, high schoolers 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 vertices of a polygon.

Understanding the Properties of a Dilation
In this dilations learning exercise, students solve 29 short answer and graphing problems. Students graph ordered pairs to construct polygons. Students dilate their constructions and see how the image and pre-image are related.
