Although educators agree that making connections with the real world, as advocated by Principles to Actions: Ensuring Mathematical Success for All (NCTM 2014), is important, making such connections while addressing important mathematics is elusive. We have found, however, that math content coupled with the instructional strategy of predict, check, explain can bridge such real-world contexts. In so doing, this procedure supports the research-informed teaching practices of using evidence of student thinking and aiding meaningful mathematical discussion.

The more connections that students can make between mathematical content and the real world, the better they will become at developing critical thinking and understanding mathematics. This lesson on exploring geometric dilations encourages small cooperative-group critiques and connections to an abundance of middle school math concepts. Graphing proportional relationships and finding the constant of proportionality are big ideas in middle school mathematics. This two-part lesson connects these ideas and many more Common Core State Standards (CCSSI 2010) through fun, student-driven activities.
