VIC: Transformation 2 - Dilations, a graphical approach

by Frank Moya


The aim of this activity is for students to develop an understanding of dilations through algebra rather than memorising formats and associating potentially erroneous logic.


  • Transformation
  • Dilation
  • Factor
  • Towards or Away from axis

About the Lesson

Students can edit the algebra that defines the dilated point. The discrete connection between the algebra and the visual helps students understand the connections.
