TASK CARD: Dilation Dilemmas
TEKS 8.6A: Generate similar shapes using dilations including enlargements and reductions.
Follow the instructions to complete all activities in BAGS A-D. Record all answers on the Dilation Dilemmas Recording Sheet and turn in to your teacher.

1. In BAG A (Tyra Photos) Use a ruler to measure the dimensions of the “original” Tyra Banks
photo in centimeters. Record these dimensions in the appropriate section of the Dilation
Dilemmas recording sheet.
• Next, measure and record the dimensions each of the similar photocopies and determine the scale factor used to enlarge and reduce the “original” Tyra Banks photo.
• Answer the questions that follow the activity.
