Product Description
This activity engages students in drawing three sets of polygons. Each set has the students graph an initial figure, then one that is twice as long, then one that is twice as tall, and finally one that is twice as tall and twice as long. After drawing each shape, the students measure the perimeter and area and compare the ratio of corresponding sides. Students discover special relationships when the figures are similar or enlargements of each other.
