Chapter 7: Similarity

Difficulty Level: At Grade Created by: CK-12

In this chapter, we will start with a review of ratios and proportions. Second, we will introduce the concept of similarity. Two figures are similar if they have the same shape, but not the same size. We will apply similarity to polygons, quadrilaterals and triangles. Then, we will extend this concept to proportionality with parallel lines and dilations. Finally, there is an extension about self-similarity, or fractals, at the end of the chapter.
