Covering the Plane with Rep-Tiles
Students discover and explore a special kind of tiling of the plane. Rep-tiles are geometric figures such that n copies can fit together to form a larger, similar figure. They realize that any of the similar figures can be used to tile the plane.

Mathematics Within: Slope and Triangles
Learners discover a method for determining the slope of a line by creating and comparing similar triangles. They fold coordinate grids to make three similar triangles then measure the sides to compare the relationships between the...

Identifying Series and Determining Congruence or Similarity
Learners consider a set of questions to determine a series of transformations that will move one figure to another. Once the series is determined, the pupil then determines whether the pre-image and image are either congruent or similar.
