Discovering What it Means to be Similar Triangles Continued

Unit 7: Linear Equations in two Variables
Lesson 6 of 23

Objective: SWBAT understand angle relationships with similar triangles, discover correct methods of enlarging similar triangles and then apply this to dilating figures.

Big Idea: Imagine teaching similarity, angle-angle similarity for triangles, and dilations all at once! It's a three for one deal!
