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 coordinates and connects the dots.

The Fundamentals of Space-Time: Part 2
The mind-bending concept of space-time is further discussed by two cartoon scientists in this second of three animated films. Assign each part and the accompanying Think questions as homework or as an enrichment when working on motion with your physics wizards.

Twists and Turns
Students reflect, rotate, translate, and dilate figures in the Cartesian coordinate plane using grid paper and dot paper. They use transformations (i.e., reflections, translations, rotations, and dilations) to describe geometric patterns in the Cartesian plane.

Studying the Properties of Figures Created through a Dilation
For this geometry worksheet, 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 vertices of a polygon.

Understanding the Properties of a Dilation
In this dilations worksheet, 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.

Transformations, Tessellations, and Technology
Learners complete a unit about transformations and tessellations. They explore various tessellation websites, determine which shapes tessellate, complete a log about which website activities they complete, and create a tessellation using a computer Paint program.

Unit 14 - Loci and Transformations
In this transformations worksheet, high schoolers solve 25 short answer problems. Students dilate, reflect, and translate points and figures in the coordinate plane. High schoolers determine scale factors and lines of symmetry of figures.

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 schoolers, who reproduce the transformation by plotting the given points, then hypothesizing the name of the figure that was transformed.
