This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 21, Unit 1, Grade 7. For the scale drawing of a different scale, students compute the scale factor for the original scale drawing. Create a new drawing in which all of the lengths are those in the original scale drawing from Lesson 20. Would the new scale create a larger or smaller scale drawing as compared to the original drawing?
