## 8 - 12 WU111 Dilations 2.docx - Section 1: Warm Up

# Dilations 2

Lesson 12 of 18

## Objective: SWBAT understand dilations with the origin as the center of dilation.

#### Warm Up

*10 min*

Each day, students complete a warm-up that usually consists of spiraling the previous day's material, in addition to older material. Warm-up problems also sometimes extend lessons that students have encountered before to more unfamiliar contexts.

#### Huddle

*10 min*

For the huddle in this lesson, I like talking about #6, 7, and 8, because they push on some conceptual understanding of dilations beyond the simple application of scale factors. They push to the next level of thinking, and are nice opportunities for kids to get up and defend their positions in front of the entire class.

#### Homework

*15 min*

Homework is to be completed at home and should take students approximately 15 minutes.

*I noticed that both of your lessons on dilation are with the origin as the center. Do 8th graders have to learn dilation with other points as the center? | 9 months ago | Reply*
