Problems Using Scale Math Games

In this series of games, your students will learn to solve problems involving scale drawings of geometric figures. The Problems Using Scale learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 7.G.A.1 as written in the common core national math standards.

Concepts Covered

Scale drawings are drawings that represent measurements of a real object in terms of smaller units of measurement. Angles in a scale drawing are the same as the corresponding angles in the real object. Lengths are not the same in a scale drawing, but differ by a constant scale factor.

Compute or estimate lengths in real objects by computing or measuring lengths in the drawings and multiplying by the scale factor. Determine what is the same and what is different about scale drawings and their original counterparts. The area in the scale drawing is also a constant multiple of the area in the original.
