Scale Up or Down

Seventh graders use polygons to create scale drawings on quarter-inch grid paper, while making conversions within the same measurement system. They focus on how the length of the sides of the original figure relates to the length of the second figure and determine an appropriate scale factor for their drawings.

I am actually not a teacher, yet. I am a college student on my way to becoming a high school math teacher. Lesson Planet has been a lifesaver on several occasions. I have used it for everything from learning how to word a lesson plan to using a lesson plan I found on the site to teach a mini-lesson. I use it quite a bit now so I know it will be invaluable in my teaching career. It is great as it is and so easy to navigate.
