This Verifying Dilation lesson plan also includes:
- Graphic & Image
- Lesson Plan
- Join to access all included materials
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. Extensions can be added by considering dilations affected by different scale factors, or by dilating other figures such as triangles or parallelograms.
