This is a high interest, interactive activity that will allow you to easily see if your students have mastered dilations on a coordinate plane. Students must use the given pre-image points, perform the stated dilations, and then plot the new image points to create a figure which they can then color and decorate.
This can be used as an in class or home project or an assessment.
Common Core 8.G.A.3 - Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.
Understand that a two-dimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations; given two similar two-dimensional figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the similarity between them.
This puzzle can be purchased as part of a $5.00 bundle that includes 8 different puzzles including translations, reflections, rotations, dilations and mixtures of some or all transformations at:
