Reflection: Student Ownership Series of Transformations that Lead to Congruence - Section 3: Huddle

In this unit, I LOVE using student work samples to demonstrate creativity, inspire other students, and even learn myself, as the kids never cease to amaze me with their brilliance.

It also reinforces the idea of solving something in multiple ways... and students get to see how the four transformations relate to each other.

Check out the attached samples in the resource section.

Student Ownership: Student work samples - creativity!
