proportion | an equation stating that two ratios are equivalent |

cross products | equal products formed from a pair of equivalent ratios by multiplying |

similar figures | figures that have the same shape but not necessarily the same size |

corresponding parts | when two figures are similar, for each angle or side of one figure there is a similar angle or side on the other figure |

congruent figures | figures that have the same shape and the same size |

scale | the ratio of a measurement on a model or a drawing to the corresponding measurement on the actual object |

protractor | a tool used to measure an angle |
