7.1.6 Digital Applets: Scaling a Pattern Block (Rhombi, Triangles & Trapezoids), Scaling More Pattern Blocks (Rhombi, Triangles & Trapezoids)

This is an assignable version of the digital applets that go with Grade 7, Unit 1, Lesson 6: Scaling and Area.

Assign these activities to students so that they can build scaled copies using pattern blocks as units of area. 

Students using the applets should still note their responses to each question on paper so that they can fully participate in the activity and lesson synthesis discussions.
