For this inquiry activity, students create their own design on a coordinate plane and use this design to explore properties of dilation. They will be asked to shrink and expand their design by a given scale factor, compare the coordinates of each design, and finally be given an opportunity to prove the properties of similarity and dilation on a coordinate plane. Students will use the distance formula to demonstrate corresponding sides are proportional and a protractor to demonstrate corresponding angles are equal.
