#### Flipped Math: Geometry

Imagine taking a complete geometry course remotely! Eleven units make up the My Geometry course. Each unit follows the Flipped-Mastery cycle of learning, divided into two semesters. Pupils watch and take notes on a video that details the...

Curated OER

#### Dilations in the Plane

Tenth graders investigate dilations and explore the dilation transformation before investigating the properties of a dilation using Cabri Jr. Students extend the concept of dilatation to the coordinate plane.

Curated OER

#### Coordinate Plane Transformations

Geometric transformations are explored by high schoolers. They will create a set of instructions for plotting coordinates representing an original transformation of a real-world figure. These instructions are shared with middle...

#### Transforming Houses

Moving a house is hard work. Given a diagram of a row of houses, scholars determine a set of transformations that would map one house to the next. A second diagram with a coordinate plane helps with the task.

Virginia Department of Education

#### Transformations

The coordinate plane is a popular place! Identify rotations, reflections, and dilations on the coordinate plane. Pupils work in small groups to match transformations of a figure with the description of the transformation. They perform...

EngageNY

#### Dilations from Different Centers

Can you follow a composition of transformations, or better yet construct them? Young mathematicians analyze the composition of dilations, examining both the scale factor and centers of dilations. They discover relationships for both and...

University of Utah

#### Geometry: Transformations, Congruence, and Similarity

Rigid motions are to congruence as what are to similarity? Investigate properties of rigid motions and define congruence in terms of rigid motions with the ninth chapter of a 10-part eighth grade workbook series. The lesson then prompts...

Curated OER

#### What is a Transformation?

A transformation is the process of changing the graph of a figure or a shape. The instructor introduces the four most common transformations: reflection, dilation, rotation, and translation. So watch as she draws the transformations on a...

EngageNY

#### Matrix Notation Encompasses New Transformations!

Class members make a real connection to matrices in the 25th part of a series of 32 by looking at the identity matrix and making the connection to the multiplicative identity in the real numbers. Pupils explore different matrices and...

Curated OER

#### What is a Transformation?

Mathed Up!

#### Mixed Transformations

Viewers learn how to identify and perform a variety of transformations with a video that provides seven items on transformations. Pupils demonstrate their understanding of dilations, reflections, rotations, and translations. The video...

Curated OER

#### How Do You Make a Figure Larger Using a Dilation?

A dilation increases or decreases the size of a figure. In this lesson the teacher shows you how to use a scale factor of three to dilate the given figure. She identifies the ordered pairs, multiplies them by three, plots the new...

Willow Tree

#### Transformations

How does something go from here to there? Describe it with a transformation. Young mathematicians learn how to translate, reflect, rotate, and dilate an image.

EngageNY

#### Four Interesting Transformations of Functions (Part 1)

Understanding how functions transform is a key concept in mathematics. This introductory lesson makes a strong connection between the function, table, and graph when exploring transformations. While the resource uses absolute value...

CK-12 Foundation

#### Dilation: Lesson

Dilation—more than just an eye opener! A short video introduces the concept of dilating a figure given a center and a scale factor. Using prime notation, the installment of a larger geometry playlist shows how to label dilated images.

CK-12 Foundation

#### Dilation in the Coordinate Plane: Lesson

Multiply coordinates to either shrink or enlarge a figure. An informative segment of a geometry playlist introduces dilation on the coordinate plane. The dilations in the resource use the origin as the center of dilation, which makes...

EngageNY

#### Four Interesting Transformations of Functions (Part 4)

What do you get when you cross piecewise functions with transformations? An engaging lesson! The conclusion of a four-part series on the transformations of functions asks class members to apply transformations to piecewise functions...
