Lesson 16. Unit 1. Grade 7 EngageNY

EngageNY10 min(s)

This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 16, Unit 1, Grade 7. In this exercise, the sizes of the units on the grid are enlarged, and then reduced to produce two different scale drawings with lengths that are proportional to one another. Guide students to notice that the number of units of length is staying the same, but the size of each unit changes from one drawing to another due to the shrinking and enlarging of the grid. This allows for students to create a scale drawing without having to complete the computation required in finding equivalent ratios.
