Scale Drawings and Scale Models
Course 2 5-9 Scale Drawings and Scale Models EQ: How do I use ratios and proportions in scale drawings? M7G3.b Understand the relationships among scale factors, length ratios, and area ratios between similar figures. Use scale factors, length ratios, and area ratios to determine side lengths and areas of similar geometric figures

Scale Models and Scale Drawings
Course 2 5-9 Scale Models and Scale Drawings This HO gauge model train is a scale model of a historic train. A scale model is a proportional model of a three-dimensional object. Its dimensions are related to the dimensions of the actual object by a ratio called the scale factor. The scale factor of an HO gauge model train is 1 87 This means that each dimension of the model is of the corresponding dimension of the actual train. 1 87

Scale Models and Scale Drawings
Course 2 5-9 Scale Models and Scale Drawings A scale is the ratio between two sets of measurements. Scales can use the same units or different units. The photograph shows a scale drawing of the model train. A scale drawing is a proportional drawing of an object. Both scale drawings and scale models can be smaller or larger than the objects they represent.

1 unit on the drawing is 20 units.
Scale Interpretation 1:20 1 unit on the drawing is 20 units. 1 cm:1 m 1 cm on the drawing is 1 m. in. = 1 ft in. on the drawing is 1 ft. 1 4 1 4

Additional Example 1: Finding a Scale Factor
Course 2 5-9 Scale Drawings and Scale Models Additional Example 1: Finding a Scale Factor Identify the scale factor. Room Blueprint Length (in.) 144 18 Width (in.) 108 13.5 blueprint length room length 18 144 Write a ratio using one of the dimensions. = 1 8 = A scale factor is always the ratio of the model’s dimensions to the actual object’s dimensions. Caution! 1 8 The scale factor is .

Additional Example 1: Using Proportions to Find Unknown Scales or Lengths
A. The length of an object on a scale drawing is 2 cm, and its actual length is 8 m. The scale is 1 cm: __ m. What is the scale? 1 cm x m 2 cm 8 m Set up proportion using scale length . actual length = 4 = x The scale is 1 cm:4 m.

The scale a:b is read “a to b
The scale a:b is read “a to b.” For example, the scale 1 cm:4 m is read “one centimeter to four meters.” Reading Math

The length of an object on a scale drawing is 4 cm, and its actual length is 12 m. The scale is 1 cm: __ m. What is the scale? 4 cm 12 m Set up proportion using scale length . actual length 1 cm x m = 3 = x The scale is 1 cm:3 m.

Under a 1000:1 microscope view, an amoeba appears to have a length of 8 mm. What is its actual length? scale length actual length 1000 1 = 8 mm x mm x = 0.008 The actual length of the amoeba is mm.

Under a 10,000:1 microscope view, a fiber appears to have length of 1mm. What is its actual length?
scale length actual length 10,000 1 = 1 mm x mm x = The actual length of the fiber is mm.
