Transformations – ReflectionsLesson Planet
7th - 8th CCSS: Adaptable
Scholars use interactive resources to figure out how to mathematically draw a reflection of a geometric shape viewed in a mirror. To conclude the activity, class members are asked to deduce the result of multiple reflections across...
Study Jams! TransformationsLesson Planet
3 mins 7th - 9th CCSS: Adaptable
Flip, spin, and shift with this vocabulary-rich video on transformations. Learners watch different movements and see how to move an object without affecting its size. The video follows with a multiple choice assessment that...
Exploring Genetics Across the Middle School Science and Math CurriculaLesson Planet
6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
Where is a geneticist's favorite place to swim? A gene pool. Young geneticists complete hands-on activities, experiments, and real-world problem solving throughout the unit. With extra focus on dominant and recessive genes, Punnett...
Congruence, Proof, and ConstructionsEngageNY
8th - 10th CCSS: Designed
This amazingly extensive unit covers a wealth of geometric ground, ranging from constructions to angle properties, triangle theorems, rigid transformations, and fundamentals of formal proofs. Each of the almost-forty lessons is broken...
Finding the Mirror LineLesson Planet
6 mins 6th - 11th CCSS: Adaptable
Where does the reflection come from? The vivdeo starts with a quick review of the form of the equation of horizontal and vertical lines and diagonals passing through the origin. Using a pre-image and an image of a reflected figure, the...
Transformations: TranslationsLesson Planet
5 mins 9th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Slide into vector transformations. Column vectors define the translation of figures by defining the number of units to move horizontally and vertically on the coordinate graph. Pupils develop an understanding of how to read the...
Smarter Balanced Sample Items: 8th Grade Math – Target GLesson Planet
8th CCSS: Designed
Transform the thinking of transformations with six sample items that illustrate the first four standards in the eighth grade geometry domain. Items use the coordinate plane to transform figures and analyze the relationship of the figures...
Human Tree: DilationsLesson Planet
2 mins 6th - 8th CCSS: Designed
Look at dilations exponentially. Using a fractal from a museum exhibit, the installment from the Math at the Core: Ratios series introduces the term dilation. The presenter points out that dilations can make images either smaller or...
Enlargements with Negative Scale FactorLesson Planet
5 mins 6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
How will a scale factor affect a figure—negatively? Using a grid, the narrator of an engaging video performs a dilation with a negative scale factor. The presenter compares a positive scale factor with a negative scale factor to explain...
Enlargements Using Ray MethodLesson Planet
6 mins 8th - 11th CCSS: Adaptable
Figure out what to do when there is no grid to count. Using a ruler and a sharp pencil, the narrator shows how to perform a dilation when the figure is not on a grid. The ray method works by drawing a ray from the center of dilation...
Enlargements with Fractional Scale FactorsLesson Planet
4 mins 6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
Enlargements make it bigger, right? A video shows viewers how to perform a basic dilation with a fractional scale factor. They learn how to use the scale factor to find the location of the transformed vertex by multiplying the horizontal...
Describing EnlargementsLesson Planet
7 mins 6th - 12th CCSS: Adaptable
What caused that to happen? Using three aspects, a video demonstrates how to describe an enlargement or dilation. The presenter counts the lengths of the sides to determine the scale factor and a ruler to find the center of dilation.
Transformation - Rotation: LessonLesson Planet
6 mins 7th - 11th CCSS: Adaptable
Change places by pivoting the figure. The section of a geometry playlist introduces rotations by making the connection to rotational symmetry. The presentation provides formulas to use with the coordinates when rotating a figure around...
Transformation - Reflection: LessonLesson Planet
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...
Transformation - Translation: LessonLesson Planet
4 mins 7th - 11th CCSS: Adaptable
Develop a prime example of sliding about the coordinate plane. Using figures on the coordinate plane, a segment of an extensive geometry playlist introduces the transformation of translations. The presentation uses coordinate notation to...
Dilation in the Coordinate Plane: LessonLesson Planet
4 mins 8th - 11th CCSS: Adaptable
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...
Math Grade 8: Explore Transformations and SymmetryLesson Planet
8th CCSS: Designed
Block letters can help with your understanding of geometry. Learners create three-letter words using letters that have either rotational or line symmetry. They write the words on a grid and apply rotations, reflections, and translations.
