Exploring Representation
  Introduction | Scaling Area | Problem Reflection | Summary | Your Journal


In this Interactive Activity, you will explore what happens to the area of a rectangle when you change one or both of its dimensions (i.e., length and/or width). You will then explore the same questions, only this time involving triangles. While looking at representations of several different rectangles and triangles, you will represent your findings in a table and determine whether there is a general pattern.

Next  Reflect on the Scaling Area problem
