Studying the Properties of Figures Created through a Dilation
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.
9th - 12th Math
Defining Transformations that Create Congruent Figures
Rotations, reflections, and translations are explored as geometers rotate through three different stations and develop their own definitions for these terms. Afterward, they work in small groups to classify different figures based on their definitions.

Transform Your Geometry into a Work of Art
Mathematicians utilize artwork to help illustrate the major ideas of transformations and tessellations. They visually identify transformations including reflections, rotations, and translations. They discuss how artists have used geometry in their artwork.
9th - 10th Math
Exploring Quadratic Data with Transformation Graphing
Using a data collection device to collect data regarding a bouncing ball, young scholars use various features on graphing calculators to experiment with the parameters of the vertex form of the parabola and their effect on the shape of the curve.

Translations, Reflections, Rotations
Tenth graders explore translations, rotations and reflections of two dimensional objects. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders use transformation to move objects and shapes around on a coordinate plane. They create a hands on transformation using constructions paper and graph paper.
Transformations Using Matrices
In 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.
