Reflections on the Coordinate Grid

Unit 4: Coordinate Plane
Lesson 3 of 6

Objective: SWBAT recognize that when two ordered pairs differ only by signs, the locations of the points are related by reflections across one or both axes

Big Idea: A point is considered to be a reflection of another point when the absolute values of the coordinates are the same but the signs of one of the values are opposites.
