Reflection: High Quality Task Series of Transformations that Lead to Similarity - Section 3: Huddle

 

In this unit, I LOVE using student work samples to demonstrate creativity, inspire other students, and even learn myself, as the kids never cease to amaze me with their brilliance.

It also reinforces the idea of solving something in multiple ways... and students get to see how the four transformations relate to each other.

Check out the attached samples in the resource section.

Series of Transformations that Lead to Similarity

Unit 8: CONGRUENCE AND SIMILARITY THROUGH TRANSFORMATIONS
Lesson 16 of 18

Objective: SWBAT understand what happens when a series of translations, reflections, rotations, and/or dilations is performed on a figure.

Big Idea: Unlock students' creativity by pushing them to create two similar figures in multiple ways by using different series of transformations.
