Scale Factor unavailable

(View Complete Item Description)

It seems commonsense that when the dimensions of an object are doubled, the area is doubled as well. You can use this applet to investigate this misconception. Students can see how changes in the scale factor influence the ratio of perimeters and the ratio of areas between two figures.

How Long Will It Take? unavailable

(View Complete Item Description)

In this lesson, students will participate in a group activity using a sponge ball and a growing human circle. The students will be added to a circle in groups of two and will pass the sponge ball from hand to hand until it returns to the "starting" hand; all while being timed. The data will be recorded each time a new group is added to the circle. At the end of the activity the students will be able to construct a scattered plot, using Illuminations, as well as, make a prediction about the future. This activity will help students interpret relative frequencies.

Identifying Similar Triangles

(View Complete Item Description)

This lesson unit is intended to help you assess how students reason about geometry and, in particular, how well they are able to: use facts about the angle sum and exterior angles of triangles to calculate missing angles; apply angle theorems to parallel lines cut by a transversal; interpret geometrical diagrams using mathematical properties to identify similarity of triangles.
