Geometry Module 2, Topic B, Lesson 11

In Lesson 11, students examine the effects of dilating figures from two different centers.  By experimental verification, they examine the impact on the two dilations of having two different scale factors, the same two scale factors, and scale factors whose product equals .  Each of the parameters of these cases provides information on the centers of the dilations, their scale factors, and the relationship between individual dilations versus the relationship between an initial figure and a composition of dilations.
