Geometry Module 2, Topic C, Lesson 12


Student Outcomes

  • Students define a similarity transformation as the composition of basic rigid motions and dilations. Students define two figures to be similar if there is a similarity transformation that takes one to the other.
  • Students can describe a similarity transformation applied to an arbitrary figure (i.e., not just triangles) and can use similarity to distinguish between figures that resemble each other versus those that are actually similar.
