Describing Precise Transformations

Unit 3: Congruence and Rigid Motions
Lesson 17 of 17

Objective: SWBAT describe a transformation that carries one figure onto another so that specific points or lines coincide. Students will understand what it means to be precise when describing a transformation.

Big Idea: Using dynamic geometry software, students learn to determine the precise vector, line of reflection, or center and angle of rotation that will bring parts of a triangle together.
