Study Guide for Stretching & Shrinking Unit Test
Assessment will be on Thursday March 9th
- Apply coordinate rules to stretch or shrink shapes and then plot them.
- Understand ways that stretching or shrinking a figure affects lengths, angle measures,
- Draw shapes on coordinate grids and use coordinate rules to stretch (x, y), shrink and move the shapes.
- Determine the way that stretching and shrinking a figure affects lengths, angle measures, perimeters, and areas.
- Identify similar polygons and use scale factor and side length ratios to prove similarity between polygons.
- Calculate scale factor of two similar shapes and find measures of angles in similar polygons.
- Apply relationship of scale factor to perimeter and area.
- Use the properties of similarity to find distances and heights that you can’t measure.
- Use specific vocabulary appropriately, use the terms we have learned and discussed in class - specific vocabulary is posted in the classrooms as well as on the Math Blog.
