Dilations Worksheets
What are Dilation Transformations? In mathematics, a dilation is a function from a metric space into itself that satisfies the identity for all points, where is the distance from to and is some positive real number. In Euclidean space, such a dilation is a similarity of the space. Dilations change the size but not the shape of an object or figure. OR A dilation is a transformation that produces an image that is the same shape as the original, but is a different size... A description of a dilation includes the scale factor (or ratio) and the center of the dilation. The center of dilation is a fixed point in the plane.

Basic Lesson
Guides students through recognizing dilations. Under a dilation, triangle A(0,0), B(0,2), C(4,0) becomes triangle A'(0,0), B'(0,4), C(8,0). What is the scale factor for this dilation? B(0,2) becomes after dilation B'(0,4) that means y coordinate changed 2 to 4.
