• Students describe the effect of dilations on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.

Dilation has a multiplicative effect on the coordinates of a point in the plane. Given a point (x, y) in the plane, a
dilation from the origin with scale factor r moves the point (x, y) to (rx, ry)

For example, if a point (3, -5) in the plane is dilated from the origin by a scale factor of r = 4, then the coordinates
of the dilated point are (4 × 3, 4 × (-5)) = (12, - 20)

Classwork

Example 1

Students learn the multiplicative effect of scale factor on a point. Note that this effect holds when the center of dilation
is the origin. In this lesson, the center of dilation will always be assumed to be (0, 0)

Example 2

Students learn the multiplicative effect of scale factor on a point.

Example 3

The coordinates in other quadrants of the graph are affected in the same manner as we have just seen. Based
on what we have learned so far, given point A = (-2. 3) predict the location of A' when A is dilated from a
center at the origin, (0, 0) by scale factor r = 3.

Exercises 1 - 5

1. Point A = (7, 9) is dilated from the origin by scale factor r = 6. What are the coordinates of point A'?

2. Point B = (-8, 5) is dilated from the origin by scale factor r = 1/2. What are the coordinates of point B'?

3. Point C = (6, -2) is dilated from the origin by scale factor r = 3/4. What are the coordinates of point C'?

4. Point D = (0, 11) is dilated from the origin by scale factor r = 4. What are the coordinates of point D'?

5. Point E = (-2, -5) is dilated from the origin by scale factor r = 3/2. What are the coordinates of point E'?
