Title: You can die now or "dilate R to R'"
Description: This lesson will teach students to not only create a dilation, but also assist them in understanding the relationship of similarity between a figure and its image through a dilation.  Students will use an online math tool to adjust the location of the point of dilation, and they will find the scale factor changes when the point of dilation moves.  Students will also find that parallel lines can be used to create a dilation.

Title: Square Graphs
Description: This student interactive, from an Illuminations lesson, allows students to view six different graphs.
