Rotations in the Coordinate Plane

Unit 6: Transformations
Lesson 11 of 23

Objective: Transition students from the conceptual understanding of rotations with tracing paper to rotations about the origin using coordinates.

Big Idea: Transition students from using tracing paper to perform rotations into using coordinates and realizing the pattern of rotating in multiples of 90 degrees about the origin.
