Scaling Similar Shapes

Today we are going to look at scaling similar shapes within our Maths lesson. The lesson should take you about an hour or a little bit less.


Start of by carefully reading through the Learning Reminders which are attached below as pictures. You will also need the resource sheet called ‘Similar shapes’ - if you can print this, that would be really helpful. If you can’t then make sure you can see it on the screen.  


When you feel like you are at a stage to practise scaling similar shapes you can do so by using the practise sheets below. You will have a choice of mild (easier) or hot (harder) and there are answers at the bottom of each set of questions so you can check - but make sure you don’t just copy the answers down. Remember to show your working out!


If you find the practises a bit tricky, have a go at the support task sheet!


When you feel you are confident with scaling similar shapes complete the assessment questions - these are the “green sheets” you usually complete in class.


Make sure you send us your questions and/or your work. Enjoy.
