Students learn how to construct and use scale drawings to measure angles of elevation and depression and unknown lengths. As learning progresses students are challenged to decide their scale and investigate similar shapes.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to construct a scale drawing of a triangle.
- Most students should be able to construct a scale drawing of a triangle to measure a length or angle.
- Some students should be able to draw and measure line segments and angles in geometric figures, including interpreting scale drawings.
