SWBAT understand how dilations on the coordinate plane relate to 3-D art and reducing as they approach the vanishing point (center of dilation).

This project is fun, fun, fun for students and also so educational on a middle school and high school level connecting dilations, similar figures, and 3-D art!

The opening day of the lesson revolved around teaching students the mechanics of 3-D perspective art. This section of the lesson is really focused on the artistic requirements that will later be the medium through which the students create the math. It is important for students to feel confident with the artistic requirements of the project so if your art teacher is unable to work with your students you may use the video below of our art teacher introducing the concept to my students.
