Looking at two figures that are the same shape and have the same angle measurements? You have similar figures! Learn all about it in this tutorial!
How do you know if one figure is similar to another? If you can find a similarity transformation that maps one figure to the other, then the figures are similar! Learn more about spotting similarity transformations with this tutorial.
Looking at similar figures? Want to find a missing measurement on one of the figures? You could use a scale factor to solve! In this tutorial, learn how to create a ratio of corresponding sides with known length and use the ratio to find the scale factor. Then, write an equation using the scale factor to find your missing measurement!
Have similar figures? Want to find the scale factor? Then check out this tutorial! You'll see how to use measurements from similar figures to create a ratio and find the scale factor.
When someone's eyes dilate, their pupils get bigger or smaller, but they always stay the same shape. Dilation in math is very similar. When you dilate a figure, you change the size of the figure without changing its shape. This tutorial introduces you to dilation. Take a look!
When you look in the mirror, you see your reflection. In math, you can create mirror images of figures by reflecting them over a given line. This tutorial introduces you to reflections and shows you some examples of reflections. Take a look!
Ever turned a door handle? You were performing a rotation! In math, rotations are just the same! Check out this tutorial to learn about rotations.
Ever slide something across a table? If so, then you have performed a translation! In this tutorial, learn the definition of translation and see some really neat examples. Take a look!
