Students explore the concept of transformations. For this transformations lesson, students enter data into lists and make a scatter plot of points. Students use lists to transform the data points by shifting the points, left and right, or up and down. Students also enlarge and shrink the data points.
In this geometry worksheet, students walk through several exercises to determine the effect of dilation when the scale factor is less than 1, greater than 1, or equal to 1 as well as the effect on the lengths, area, and vertices of a polygon. There are 55 questions and several pages of blank graph paper.
For this transformations worksheet, 10th graders solve and complete 16 different types of problems. First, they graph the image of the figure using the transformation given. Then, students find the coordinates of the vertices of each figure after the given transformation.
Mathematicians analyze the vertex form of a parabola and find an approximate fit of a model. They explain the quadratic parabola function and its properties by developing quadratic models. They use translation and dilation to change the general parabola. PDF downloads of the lab activity are included.
