Possible time frame:
20 days
In this unit students will explore translations, reflections, and rotations. This is the first time students have been introduced to transformations. This unit should begin by
transforming points to help develop the properties of each transformation. Once students have developed an understanding of each transformation and some of their
properties, begin verifying the properties through experiments. Through experiments students should solidify their understanding of each transformation and fully develop the
properties of each. Design experiments with the initial and transformed geometric item along with a particular transformation (or series of transformations) that was
performed. Students will then determine if the proposed transformation (or series of transformations) actually works and possibly alter the proposed transformation (or series
of transformations) to one that does carry the initial item onto the transformed one. Students will then apply their understandings of the transformations to two-dimensional
figures. The criteria for figure congruence will be established through rigid motion and applied to help students create a sequence of transformations that would carry one figure
onto another. You may consider beginning transformations of figures on a blank grid and then extend to the coordinate plane. Students will begin to formalize the effects of
translations, reflections, and rotations in terms of coordinates.

e.
Sarah thinks that she can produce the X”Y”Z” from XYZ with one transformation, a 180˚
rotation about the origin. Is she correct? Explain why or why not.
No, the coordinates for X”Y”Z” are X”(4, -2), Y”(1, -5), and Z”(1, -3), but the coordinates
of the angle if it is rotated 180˚ are X(2, -4), Y(5, -1), and Z (3, -1). (2 points)
Or
In order to produce 180˚ rotation, two reflections are necessary.
Or
Any other student responses that are accurate and demonstrate strong mathematical
reasoning.
a. Show that ∆ is congruent to ∆ with a reflection followed by a translation.
Reflect across the y-axis, then translate down 6 units.
There are other possible
combinations of
reflections and
translations, but this is
the one the students will
most likely choose.
However, other solutions
will need to be checked
for accuracy.
b.
If you reverse the order of your reflection and translation in part (a) does it still map ∆ to
∆?
This answer is dependent on the answer in part (a). Using the reflection and translation
chosen above, the answer would be yes. ∆ translated down 6 units and then
reflected over the y-axis, would result in ∆. See below.
