**1**-**20**of**562**resourcesYour carpenters will enjoy learning scaled drawing techniques and applying their new knowledge to make some real-life scale drawings of gardens. Your carpenter scholars will be reviewing some basic skills in a warm-up section of problems and then move on to learning about scales and scale drawings. To wrap up their knowledge, compass points are explored and three figure bearings are studied.

Scale drawings are an easy and plausible way to represent large things, such as roads and buildings, on paper. This tutorial explains what a scale drawing is and uses the example of a house to demonstrate how a scale drawing works. It does not explain how to solve the final proportion; however, that is not the objective of the video. A clear description of the concept.

Sixth graders examine a blue print and discuss the reasoning behind using blue prints. For this proportionality lesson, students collaborate with their teammates to create a scale drawing. Once that is complete, 6th graders write a journal entry explaining the different ways to use a scale drawing.

Students discuss the importance of scaling drawings. In this math instructional activity, students create a scaled drawing of circuit boards. They explain why accuracy is very important when scaling.

Middle and high schoolers explore the concept of scale drawings. They discuss what a scale is and that scales provide a ratio. Pupils construct a scale drawing of their classroom using graph paper.

Students describe the differences between an estimate and a guess. They create reasonable estimates based on comparison and activities. Students explain how estimation is helpful in showing the relative size on a scale. They also present other examples where scale drawings are used.

Young scholars use centimeter rulers and the attached worksheet containing a scale drawing of a stained glass window. The actual measurements of the stained glass window are given, and students are asked to find the actual measurement of the regular decagon in the center.

Proportions are ratios found using multiplication or division. Middle schoolers solve measurement problems, find a figure's missing dimension, and find the distance between two points. Resource features four lesson plans with detailed procedures, and hands on materials to elucidate and practice the concepts.

Real-life math is really great! In groups, learners measure objects in the classroom. After comparing measurements, they determine a scale and create a blueprint of the classroom. They discuss the purpose of using scale drawings in real-world situations.

Sixth graders pariticipate in a lesson that focuses on the finding of a ratio and using it to set up a proportion in realtionship to creating a scale drawing. This is done using given problems. It would be valuable for students to have the time to make mistakes and try different approaches.

In this scale drawings worksheet, students use the scale given to find the actual measure of each object. Students solve 8 problems.

In this Algebra I/Geometry worksheet, students use proportional reasoning to solve problems involving scale drawings or models. The one page worksheet contains five multiple choice questions. Answers are included.

Using a scale drawing with some dimensions missing, aspiring do-it-yourself homeowners calculate the remaining sides of a compound-shaped room. They apply the principles of ratio and proportion to determine how much crown molding will be needed to go around the ceiling (perimeter) and how many square tiles will be needed to cover the floor (area).

Make a scale drawing of a toy car, then reflect on how math can be use in marketing careers. In groups, learners work with scale drawings to calculate the dimensions of a toy car while they discuss the connection between math and marketing.

#### New! Spring Dance

Geometry learners imagine that they are responsible for designing the spring formal dance floor and banquet area in a lesson that reinforces the use of scale drawings.

Design projects are wonderful vehicles for math, engineering, and problem solving skills. Learners put their understanding of area, ratio, and scale to the test as they design a school play area. They scale their drawing up and down using the scale.

For this scale drawings and ratios worksheet, 5th graders examine the definitions and explanation provided at the top of the page. They apply the given scale when completing 8 problems at the bottom of the page.

In this scale drawing worksheet, learners solve 8 problems pertaining to scale drawings and actual measurements. Students find equivalent ratios to solve these problems.

In this scale drawings worksheet, 5th graders learn to solve measurement problems using scale drawings and models for the six word problems.
