Transformations

How is it transforming? Using videos on metamorphosis, hook the class with this STEM plan on transformations. The open inquiry lesson instructs the class to explore the effects of transformation on the coordinate plane. Groups develop and investigate questions and present their findings to the rest of the class. Several assessment types are included to assess understanding.

Instructional Ideas

  • Teach at the beginning of a unit on transformation and congruence
  • After completing the resource, integrate computer work by using geometry software that performs transformations 
Classroom Considerations

  • If class is unfamiliar with open inquiry style lessons, they may need some guidance in the procedure
  • A clip of your choice from Transformers will be needed the first day
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information
Pros

  • By developing and answering their own questions, pupils gain a better grasp of transformations
  • The post-assessment provides choices in order to show understanding
Cons

  • Pre-assessment is not included separately; it is part of post-assessment
