What 2 things do you always need to say to describe an enlargement?
How many times it is and where the starter is
What does centre of enlargement mean?
The centre of enlargement is how big the next one will be
What is a scale factor?
scale factor is a number which scales, or multiplies, some quantity. 
Explain how to work out the scale factor on a grid, and with no grid. Use diagrams you have screenshot from the myimaths lesson.
With a grid it is more easily because you just look at the small of the bottom and the sides then look at the big one then times it up Eg: 4=8 but when it is small you have draw lines to all of the corners then you measure how big it is to the x and the corner then you double above the corner do it to all then you draw it to the new x you made to make the bigger shape

What happens to the angle sizes in the corner of the shape when you enlarge it?
It stays the same
