              Enlarging Shapes to a Negative Scale Factor

              Students learn how to perform enlargements for negative scale factors.  As learning progresses they are challenged to find the centre of enlargement and negative scale factor.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to enlarge an object by a negative integer scale factor and centre.
              • Most students should be able to enlarge an object by a negative scale factor and centre.
              • Some students should be able to perform and describe enlargements using a negative scale factor.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
