Measure Your Picture 9.5 cm 8 cm 2.Decide an appropriate scale of measurement for your picture. 1.Measure your small picture in CENTIMETERS. For my Mickey picture, I am going to choose a scale of 1 cm.

Create a Grid on Small Picture My small picture 1 cm scale 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 A B C D E F G H I J

Create a Similar Grid in the lower right corner. 2 cm scale? Small pic: 9.5 x 8 cm Big pic: 19 x 16 cm Does the big picture fit? How much bigger is the scaled UP Mickey? Name: Ms. Newman Scale: _________ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 A B C D E F G H I J

Understanding the MATH behind it all… Label Drawing with Correct Scale Remember a scale is the ratio of the: Distance in drawing : Actual distance (original pic) (scale drawing) For my Mickey Mouse picture: Distance in drawing = 1 cm Actual distance = 1.5 cm Therefore, my scale is 1 cm : 1.5 cm or 2:3
