Similarity by Transformations
- Anthony DiLaura
Transform the green triangle through translations, rotations, and dilations to get it to fill the area of the blue triangle. Are the green and blue triangles similar?
Questions: Do the angle measures of the green triangle change after the transformations? Why or why not? Can you get the green triangle to fill the blue triangle through a series of transformations every time? If so, what does this tell you about the triangles? And what is the scale ratio of the two triangles? If not, what does this tell you about the triangles?
