Evaluating Statements about Enlargements SS5
In this DfE Standards Unit resource, students explore the relationship between linear and area enlargement, substitute into algebraic statements and discuss some common misconceptions about enlargement. Students will have covered some aspects of enlarging shapes before, but they may not have explored the relationships between linear, area and volume enlargement. In this session lstudents sort statements into categories: always, sometimes or never true. Throughout their work on this activity, students justify and explain
their decisions using examples and counter-examples and present their ideas to the rest of the group by means of a poster. (GCSE Grades D-F)
