        Scale City | Scaling Up Rectangles in the Real World

        In this video, students explore Depression-era post office murals and modern outdoor murals to learn how artists use proportional reasoning and measurement to create large-scale paintings. The video ends with the question, "How do artists use math to create large-scale paintings?" In the accompanying classroom activity, students create a group mural by using a predetermined scale factor to increase the size of a rectangular print or drawing.
