Directions:

Fill in the graphic organizer with the required information.


o The most useful resources to help you with this graphic
organizer are the textbook (Chapter 7), the guided notes
(Chapter 7), and the lecture (Chapter 7). You may also use
previous assignments from this unit to see more examples
of scale factor problems.
o Information does not need to be written in complete
sentences, but all work must be shown, if applicable.
o Add as much detail as possible in all boxes.
o When showing your work, make sure to make your final

answer stand out (e.g. box, bold, highlight, etc.)


You may work with partners.
o Each student needs to turn in his or her own paper.
o If you and your partner get stuck on a particular box and
have exhausted all of your resources, you have two
options:
(1) ask me for help
(2) ask another set of partners for help.
o If you choose to ask another set of partners for help, you
cannot work as a group of for the remainder of the
assignment. You must resort back to working with your
original partner after your question has been answered.

What is the formula


for the area/volume
(choose whichever

Two-Dimensional
Objects
A=lw

Three-Dimensional Objects
V=lwh

is applicable for
each box) of a
figure with all equal
sides (e.g. square,
cube)?
Explain what each
variable represents
in the formula.

What is the formula


for the area/volume
(choose whichever
is applicable for
each box) of a
figure with sides
that are not all
equal (e.g.
rectangle,
rectangular prism)?
Explain what each
variable represents
in the formula.

What is the formula


for the area/volume

is applicable for
each box) of a
figure that has
curved edges (e.g.
circle, cylinder)?
Explain what each
variable represents
in the formula.

When finding the


side length of a
new side using a
scale factor, what
formula is used?
Explain what each
variable represents
in the formula.

Create an original
figure and then use
the formula, choose
a scale factor (if
needed), and use
the formula to
reduce or enlarge
the object. Show all
work.

n=ls

S1 = S2
C1
C2

n: length of the new


side
l: length of the side
s: scale factor

S1: length of side one


C1: length of side
corresponding to S1
S2: length of side two
C2: length of side
corresponding to S2

Length: 4
centimeters

Scale Factor: 1/3


n=ls
n = 4 1/3
n = 4/3
The length of the
new line is 4/3

Create an original
figure and then use
the formula, choose
a scale factor, and
use the formula to
reduce or enlarge
the object. Show all
work.
