SWBAT solve problems involving translations.

Big Idea

Continue building students' facility with translations with a second day, tackling translations in different ways.

Warm Up

10 minutes

Each day, students complete a warm-up that usually consists of spiraling the previous day's material, in addition to older material.  Warm-up problems also sometimes extend lessons that students have encountered before to more unfamiliar contexts.

10 minutes

For the huddle for this lesson, I again spiral some key aspects of transformations, to drive fluency:


-          Definition of congruence

-          Definition of similarity

-          Review transformations (body language)

-          Which one of the transformations is not like the other?

-          What is the only thing that stays the same in a dilation? (angle measures)



15 minutes

Homework is to be completed at home and should take students approximately 15 minutes.
