Transformation - Reflection: Lesson
4 mins 7th - 11th CCSS: Adaptable
Looking into a mirror is not the same on a coordinate plane. A portion of an extensive playlist on basic geometry provides the rules to find the coordinates of points after a reflection over one of the axis. Using the rules, the video...
How Did It Get There? A Series of Transformative Events
9th - 12th CCSS: Designed
Flip, turn, and slide to get there. With the aid of hands-on materials, pairs transform a figure from one place on the coordinate plane to another. They determine a sequence that will move one figure to another and present different...
Representing Reflections with Transformations
11th - 12th CCSS: Designed
In the 16th lesson in the series of 32 the class uses the concept of complex multiplication to build a transformation in order to reflect across a given line in the complex plane. The lesson breaks the process of reflecting across a line...
Geometry Practice: Transformations, Isometries, and Tessellations
9th - 12th
Five pages for geometry practice relating to symmetry provide mathematicians with exercises on transformations and symmetry, properties of isometries, compositions of transformations, tessellations with regular polygons, and other...
Module 7: Connecting Algebra and Geometry
8th - 10th CCSS: Designed
The coordinate plane links key geometry and algebra concepts in this approachable but rigorous unit. The class starts by developing the distance formula from the Pythagorean Theorem, then moves to applications of slope. Activities...
Transformations and Isometries
3 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Give your class a solid foundational understanding of transformations. The instructor in a concept video describes each type of transformation and transformation notation. He also identifies the types of transformations that are isometries.
Discovering Math: Exploring Geometry
6th - 8th CCSS: Adaptable
Apply geometric properties and formulae for surface area and volume by constructing a three-dimensional model of a city. Learners use similar and congruent figures and transformations to create a city of at least 10 buildings. They trade...
Investigating Transformations Using Coordinates
7th - 9th CCSS: Designed
Use transformations to coordinate the coordinates! After graphing a transformation, class members examine the patterns in the coordinates. They repeat the process for each type of transformation and end by generalizing their conclusions....
Exploring Transformations with Geometer's Sketchpad
9th - 12th
Clearly written, step-by-step guided practice in creating a figure and performing a transformation with the award-winning Geometer's Sketchpad software makes up the first three pages of this resource. Questions ask for explanations of...
