Algebraic Transformations

This Algebraic Transformations interactive also includes:

Look for a pattern among flips and turns. Individuals manipulate a colored plus sign using one or two transformations. The interactive allows for rotations in quarter turn increments and vertical, horizontal, and diagonal reflections. Using a grid that records the results of two transformations, scholars analyze the pattern.
