Mathematical projects that involve practical work combined with essential mathematical concepts have the capacity to stimulate interest and create enjoyment of the discipline. In this article, I have shared a few project ideas that integrate the topics of ratio and design in a practical manner. They help students to figure out how enlargement and reduction in terms of size transformation work mathematically, and clarify the concepts and methods involved. Some of them are hands-on activities involving working with cardboard, and some involve the usage of graph paper, dot paper, etc.
