Re-Discovering Symmetry

Unit 3: Congruence and Rigid Motions
Lesson 3 of 17

Objective: SWBAT describe the transformations that carry a polygon or a tiling onto itself. Students will understand the meaning of congruence in terms of rigid motions.

Big Idea: Students describe symmetry in the art of M. C. Escher and others. In the process, they learn to describe transformations that bring corresponding parts of a figure together.
