Unit 6: Scaling Up- Dilations, Similarity and Proportional Relationships
Lesson 1 of 6

Objective: SWBAT describe the relationship between the perimeter or area of an image under dilation and the perimeter or area of the pre-image using an equation or a verbal rule. SWU how dilating a shape affects the perimeter and area of the figure.

Big Idea: Students learn how dilating a shape affects perimeter and area as they design a sign large enough to show up on Google Earth.
