# Enlarging Shapes on a Grid # Enlarging Shapes on a Grid

Students learn how to enlarge shapes objects on a grid using a centre and scale factor.

Later, learning progresses to enlarging shapes to fractional scale factors.

##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to enlarge an object using a positive integer scale factor and centre.
• Most students should be able to perform and describe an enlargement to a positive integer scale factor and centre.
• Some students should be able to perform and describe an enlargement to a positive fraction scale factor and centre.
