This activity is to be used as a discovery-based introduction to similar triangle theorems. Students will each be assigned a number 1, 2, or 3 (I use cards for this or counting off). They will get into groups by number and work on their station
How does scale factor change perimeter and area?
I had students graph two triangles with a scale factor of dilation of 2. Students looked to see how the area and perimeter are affected when a scale factor is applied. They then make conjectures
Students practice vocabulary by playing a fun game of truth or dare. Print out the cards on card stock, fold them and glue the inside to make the playing cards. I made one set for each group in my class. Have fun with the vocabulary! Editable Word
