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 concludes with individuals finding properties of special quadrilaterals based upon symmetries.
