SimilaritySimilar figures have the same shape but not necessarily the same size.
Tests for SimilarityThe measures of their corresponding angles are equal.The lengths of their corresponding sides increase by the same scale factor.

Shrinking CupsWhat would happen if you were smaller?
What challenges would you face if were much smaller, only inches tall?
Shrinking CupsWhat challenges would you face if you had to design a cup to drink from if you were only 6-12 inches tall?
Would we have to consider any aspects other than size?
