Three students share their methods for soliving the Similar Triangles on the Same line task, one using translation and dilation, one using similar rectangles, and the other presenting parallel lines. tranversal and equal angles.

# Similarity/Linearity

## Ricardo’s Flag

After Gabe (the teacher) introduces Ricardo’s Flag, a smiliarity task, to his class of English learners, students work in groups iwth Gabe’s guidance and questioning. This is followed by whole group sharing and discussion.

## Comparing Logos

After discussing several equations for Regina Logo (linear function) and Schemel’s Logo (quadratic function), students consider how the two tasks are similar and different. As the lesson closes, the teacher asks them to do a journal write on how the graphs of the two functions compare.
