Dilation is a transformation, that stretches or shrinks the original figure presented on the grid based on the scale factor. Included here are umpteen printable worksheets on finding the scale factor, identifying the dilation type, determining the new coordinates and drawing the dilated shapes with the center as origin. Recapitulate the concept with the dilation revision worksheets presented here.

Writing the scale factor
Keenly observe the figures A and B on the coordinate plane, and find the scale factor based on their measures in the worksheets featured here.
Identifying the type of dilation
Identify whether the dilation is an enlargement or a reduction in these two-part worksheets. A scale factor less than one indicates reduction while a scale factor greater than one represents enlargement.
Finding new coordinates - Type 2
Figure out the vertices of the dilated figure using the scale factor. Draw the dilated image on the xy-plane to complete the exercise.
Drawing the dilated shapes
Each dilation worksheet encompasses six unique shapes on the grid. In reference to the center of dilation and the scale factor, plot the new coordinates to draw the dilated shapes.
