Making Connections Between Art Project and Dilations Day 2 of 3
Lesson 12 of 23
Objective: SWBAT make clear connections between the perspective art project and dilations on the coordinate plane from a center point of dilation.
Introducing the Lesson
I opened the lesson by re-examining the learning goals listed at the start of the activity. I let them know that today would really clearly explain how the perspective art project was actually helping them to understand dilations on the coordinate plane. I wanted them to look forward to the activity and know that they should be looking for connections that will enhance their written reflection piece of the project. Then I read all the student conjectures about how the project relates to dilations on the coordinate plane recorded the day before on a poster. I opened the floor for new conjectures (hypothesis) about how the mechanics of the project are related to the mechanics of performing a dilation on the coordinate plane. Then we all agreed on the goals for the day and moved into completing graph two today.
