This short activity is a great way of introducing the concept of scale factor, area factor and volume factor. Students often find this concept difficulty to understand, but this activity is quick way of giving them a head start.
Working individually, or as a class, students discover for themselves the relationship between scale factor, area factor and volume factor. They have a box to fill out at the end of the activity to explain the result in their own words.
The zip file contains a pdf of the activity, an accompanying PowerPoint and the answers.
