In this lesson, students will first review how to identify and solve proportions. The lesson then covers the definitions for scale drawings, scale and scale factor and real world examples for all. Students will then be guided through examples examples on how to find scale factor and how to use scale to find a missing length. Many visuals are provided throughout the lesson so that students can get a better understanding of how scale is used in the world around them.
This lesson can be paired with the following differentiated partner work that I also created: Scale Drawings Partner Practice
