Reflection: Accountability Rocking Rotations - Section 3: Lesson End + Homework


In order to check the activity for today's class, I like to go around the room and check one to two problems for every student.  I don't necessarily check for right and wrong answers but more for completion.  This (along with the exit ticket) helps me to see what we still need to review and cover for the next day's class.  In this particularly activity, I saw that many of my students were not labeling their image points correctly which we then reviewed in the next day. 

Also, in this example, you can see that I stamped the student's work with a flower.  In order to receive credit for starting the activity, as I check work, I stamp each student's paper.  This allows me to hold them accountable and if a student hasn't started work they will not receive a stamp (and thus, not credit!)

Rocking Rotations

Unit 3: Transformers and Transformations
Lesson 2 of 7

Objective: SWBAT identify and draw rotations of polygons on the coordinate plane.

Big Idea: Students will use a hands-on approach to discovering how polygons are rotated in clockwise and counterclockwise rotations.
