  • Trees that are cut down and stripped of their branches for timber are approximately cylindrical. A timber company specializes in a certain type of tree that has a typical diameter of 50 cm and a typical height of about 10 meters. The density of the wood is 380 kilograms per cubic meter, and the wood can be sold by mass at a rate of $4.75 per kilogram. Determine and state the minimum number of whole trees that must be sold to raise at least $50,000.

  • The diameter of a sphere is 5 inches. Determine and state the surface area of the sphere, to the nearest hundredth of a square inch.

“The concepts of congruence, similarity, and symmetry can be understood from the perspective of geometric transformation.Fundamental are the rigid motions: translations, rotations, reflections, and combinations of these, all assumed to preserve distance and angles…

Similarity transformations (rigid motions followed by dilations) define similarity in the same way that rigid motions define congruence, thereby formalizing the similarity ideas of "same shape" and "scale factor" developed in the middle grades.”

A checklist of rules


A Checklist of “rules”:

Definition of reflection
Definition of Reflection

The reflection R across a given line L, where L is called the line of reflection, assigns each point on L to itself, and to any point P not on L, R assigns the point R(P) which is symmetric to it with respect to L, in the sense that L is the perpendicular bisector of segment joining P to R(P)

Definition of rotation
Definition of Rotation

  • The rotation Ro of t degrees (-360 < t < 360) around a givenpoint O, called the center of the rotation, is a transformation of the plane definedas follows. Given a point P, the point Ro(P) is defined as follows. The rotation is counterclockwise or clockwise depending on whether the degree is positive or negative, respectively. If P is distinct from O, then by definition, Ro(P) is the point Q on the circle with center O and radius |OP| so that <QOP = t and so that Q is in the counterclockwise direction of the point P.

  • Rotations require information about the center of rotation and the degree in which to rotate. Positive degrees of rotation move the figure in a counterclockwise direction. Negative degrees of rotation move the figure in a clockwise direction.

  • Basic Properties of Rotations:

  • (R1) A rotation maps a line to a line, a ray to a ray, a segment to a segment, and an angle to an angle.

  • (R2) A rotation preserves lengths of segments.

  • (R3) A rotation preserves degrees of angles.

  • When parallel lines are rotated, their images are also parallel. A line is only parallel to itself when rotated exactly 180˚.

Lesson 4: Lined Paper Activity leads to an understanding of similarity.

Similarity in terms of Dilation

Given a dilation with center O and scale factor r, then for any two points P, Q in the plane (when points O, P, Q are not collinear), the lines PQ and P’Q’ are parallel, where P’ = Dilation(P) and Q’ = Dilation(Q), and furthermore, |P’Q’| = r |PQ|.

Lesson 5 scale factors
*Lesson 5: Scale Factors

  • Facts known:

  • Ratio and Parallel Methods produce the same scale drawing.

  • Triangle Side Splitter Theorem.

  • Lesson 2: Properties of Dilations

  • Students informally verify the properties of dilations:

    • Lines map to lines,

    • Rays map to rays,

    • Segments map to segments, and

    • Angles map to angles of the same degree.

      Lesson 7: Informal Proofs of Properties of Dilations

    • Optional Lesson

      • *Informal proof that angles map to angles

      • Informal proofs that lines map to lines, rays to rays, segments to segments.

Topic c similarity and dilations
Topic C: Similarity and Dilations

  • Standards

    • G-SRT.2, G-SRT.3, G-SRT.4, G-SRT.5: Similarity transformations, the AA criterion, prove theorems about triangles, use congruence and similarity to prove relationships in geometric figures.

  • Key Concepts

    • Similarity Transformation. The composition of a finite number of dilations and/or rigid motions.

    • Two figures are said to be similar if a similarity transformation exists mapping one figure onto another. A congruence is a similarity with scale factor 1.

Lesson 15 angle angle criterion for two triangles to be similar
*Lesson 15: Angle-Angle Criterion for Two Triangles to be Similar


Two triangles with two pairs of equal corresponding angles are similar.

Use your handout to outline a proof of the theorem.
