# Series of Transformations that Lead to Similarity

Lesson 16 of 18

## Objective: SWBAT understand what happens when a series of translations, reflections, rotations, and/or dilations is performed on a figure.

#### Warm Up

*10 min*

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.

For a video narrative about how I structure each lesson, and how the warm-up fits in, click here.

#### Huddle

*10 min*

For the huddle in this lesson, I ask kids to come up with multiple ways to demonstrate compound transformations, and it's really cool the kinds of things they come up with.

See the student samples for some ideas.

I push kids also to be VERY precise about their explanations... how much of a translation? In which direction? Reflection over what line, exactly? This is really, really important.
