Similarity & Transformations

Understanding the meaning of dilation and connecting it with the real-world. Using the definition of similarity to apply similarity transformations in real-world situations.

Mapped to CCSS Section# HSG.SRT.A.1, HSG.SRT.A.2

Verify experimentally the properties of dilations given by a center and a scale factor. Given two figures, use the definition of similarity in terms of similarity transformations to decide if they are similar; explain using similarity transformations the meaning of similarity for triangles as the equality of all corresponding pairs of angles and the proportionality of all corresponding pairs of sides.
