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.

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.

Here is a lesson plan that starts out with learners creating congruent figures by drawing the exact same polygon as their partner. From here, they have a discussion about why what they drew is an exact copy, followed by other activities that look at different shapes, some with transformations, to determine their congruence.

Twelfth graders explore transforming matrices representing figures in the coordinate plane by entering data points of figures such as triangles and quadrilaterals into a matrix. Students dilate, rotate, reflect, and translate the figures by multiplying by translation matrices.

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 the angle measures and side lengths of the two similar figures.

Exploring Quadratic Data : Transformation Graphing
High schoolers 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.

Dilations in the Plane
In this geometry lesson plan, students 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.

Transformations With Lists
Young scholars explore the concept of transformations. In this transformations lesson, students enter data into lists and make a scatter plot of points. Young scholars use lists to transform the data points by shifting the points, left and right, or up and down.

Dilations and Similarity
For 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 of the image of a point under a dilation with the center at the origin of scale factor.
