“In this lesson, students see that the principles and strategies they used to reason about scaled copies are applicable to scale drawings (MP7). For example, previously they saw scale factor as a number that describes how lengths in a figure correspond to lengths in a copy of the figure (and vice versa). Now they see that scale serves a similar purpose: it describes how the lengths in an actual object are related to the lengths on a drawn representation of it. They learn that scale can be expressed in a number of ways, and use scale and scale drawings to find actual and scaled lengths.” Students will apply their knowledge of scaled drawings to understand tasks associated with careers in the Health Sciences career pathway (page 28).

“This opening lesson invites students to experiment with expressions and equations to model a situation. Students think about relevant quantities, whether they might be fixed or variable, and how they might relate to one another. They make assumptions and estimates, and use numbers and letters to represent the quantities and relationships. The lesson also draws attention to the idea of constraints and how to represent them.” Through mathematical modeling, students will consider the costs of hosting a pizza party and consider how this relates to a career in the Business Administration-Finance regional career pathway.
