Students will use the dynamic geometry tool of Cabri Jr. to see the relationships between ratios of distances and dilations.
Before the Activity
See the attached activity PDF file(s) for detailed instructions for this activity.
During the Activity
Follow the procedures outlined in the Teachers Notes. Students will:
- Be able to make conclusions about relationships between ratios of distances and dilations on the coordinate plane.
After the Activity
Review student answers:
- As a class, discuss questions that arise during the activity
- Re-teach concepts as necessary
