Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Tiling a Kitchen Floor

Cover the floor with math. Pupils work to determine the proper shape to cover a kitchen floor. They first determine the number of tiles to purchase and configure their placement to reduce the amount of waste. Teams finish by creating a...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Taking a Spin

It does not divide into 360 evenly, so it cannot work. The resource extends pupils' thinking about rotational symmetry. By asking for a figure with a rotational symmetry of a seemingly impossible angle, the activity requires learners to...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Transmographer

Introducing ... the Transmographer. Young mathematicians investigate translations, reflections, and rotations. The applet lets users perform transformations on triangles, squares, and parallelograms.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Transformations and Symmetry

Flip, turn, and slide about the coordinate plane. Pupils define the rigid motions and experiment with them before determining the relationships of the slopes of parallel and perpendicular lines. The sixth unit in a nine-part series...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Between the Lines

Explore linear and square dimensions by comparing areas of similar figures. A creative set of five activities designed for elementary through high school classes asks young scholars to compare areas of specific polygons. The first two...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Reflections

Reflections are the geometric mirror. Pupils explore this concept as they discover the properties of reflections. They focus on the coordinates of the reflections and look for patterns. This is the third lesson in a seven-part series.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Common Geometric Figures

Geometry could be called the study of figures. An overview of the figures found in a typical geometry course contains a study of different triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Transformations in the Coordinate Plane

Your learners connect the new concepts of transformations in the coordinate plane to their previous knowledge using the solid vocabulary development in this unit. Like a foreign language, mathematics has its own set of vocabulary terms...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Module 6: Congruence, Construction, and Proof

Trace the links between a variety of math concepts in this far-reaching unit. Ideas that seem very different on the outset (like the distance formula and rigid transformations) come together in very natural and logical ways. This unit...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Symmetries of Rectangles

Learners explore mapping a rectangle onto itself using rigid motion concepts, geometric intuition and experimenting with manipulatives in a collaborative task.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Symmetries of a Quadrilateral II

Learners investigate the symmetries of a convex quadrilateral in a collaborative activity. Rigid motion and complements are explored as learners analyze different cases of reflections across a line.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Symmetries of a Quadrilateral I

Learners examine the properties of quadrilaterals from the point of view of rigid motion. Different types of quadrilaterals are characterized by their symmetries, so learners explore the symmetries of a described quadrilateral to...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Seven Circles II

Your learners find as many rigid motions of the plane as they can that are symmetries of the configuration of circles. Rigid transformations of the plane are explored and become more concrete to them as they visualize and execute these...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Reflections and Equilateral Triangles II

Given the lines of symmetry in an equilateral triangle, your learners find where the pre-image vertices are mapped onto the new image. They explore the properties of equilateral triangles, the impact of reflections, and the idea that the...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Reflections and Equilateral Triangles

Your learners collaboratively find the lines of symmetry in an equilateral triangle using rigid transformations and symmetry. Through congruence proofs they show that they understand congruence in terms of rigid motions as they prove...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Unit Squares and Triangles

This is an interesting geometry problem. Given the figure, find the area of a triangle that is created by the intersecting lines. The solution requires one to use what he/she knows about coordinate geometry, as well as triangle and angle...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Reflections of Shapes

In this reflection of shapes activity, learners graph images on a coordinate plane. They reflect the image and sketch it on the graph. They write a rule to describe the transformation. This four-page activity contains 14 problems....

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Rotational Symmetry

Turn to the resource to discover rotational symmetry. Viewers of an informative video first learn the definition of rotational symmetry. They then see how to identify the order of rotational symmetry for a figure.

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Conics in Geometry

High schoolers analyze characteristics and properties of two and three-dimensional shapes in this geometry instructional activity. They follow detailed directions to use the Cabri Geometry II Application on their TI-89 calculator to...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### What's the Spin?

Learners use the CABRI application for their graphing calculator to rotate, translate, and reflect triangles. They use graphing calculators and follow detailed directions to manipulate triangles in specified ways. There are three...

Lesson Planet: Curated OER

#### Using Symmetry to Find the Vertex of a Parabola

Learners engage in a lesson that is about finding the vertex of a parabola while using symmetry. They use the symmetry to find out where the two lines meet. The line is displayed with the help of a graphing calculator. The lesson...
