Standard #: MA.8.GR.2.2

This document was generated on CPALMS -

Given a preimage and image generated by a single dilation, identify the scale factor that describes the relationship.


Clarification 1: Instruction includes the connection to scale drawings and proportions.

Clarification 2: Instruction focuses on the preservation of similarity and the lack of preservation of congruence when a figure maps onto a scaled copy of itself, unless the scaling factor is 1.

Lesson Plan

Name Description
How does scale factor affect the areas and perimeters of similar figures?

In this lesson plan, students will observe and record the linear dimensions of similar figures, and then discover how the values of area and perimeter are related to the ratio of the linear dimensions of the figures.
