In this video from KCPT, watch an animated demonstration of rotating and dilating a triangle on the coordinate plane. In the accompanying classroom activity, students watch the video; draw rotations and dilations of a triangle; and identify center of rotation, angle of rotation, and scale factors in classmates drawings. To get the most from the lesson, students should be comfortable graphing points on the coordinate plane and reproducing a drawing of a geometric shape at a different scale. Prior exposure to rotation and dilation is helpful.
