Rescaling Washington Park

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

The goal of this task is to get students to think critically about the effect that changing from one scaling to another has on an image, and then to physically produce the desired image. The natural guess is that by making the scaling smaller, the resulting map will also be smaller, when in fact the opposite happens. This task hits on a few aspects of the standard, in that it involves first thinking about what the new map will look like, and then reproducing the map under a different scale to test their guess.
