This is the first lesson in a unit on transformations. Students will examine different objects and identify their symmetries and orders of rotation based on their prior knowledge from the eighth grade.
Students will be introduced to compositions of functions by looking at MC Escher’s famous tessellations drawings. This lesson will then specifically explore glide reflections and give students an opportunity to review transformations including reflections
Students will play a vocabulary game called survival of the fittest to reinforce their knowledge of transformations and key vocab words. After this, there is a brief lesson that can be student-led which reviews compositions of transformations and connects
Students create a review sheet covering topics from the first day of the midcourse assessment. They write tips for performing constructions and create questions about transformations on the coordinate plane.
