How Do You Rotate a Figure 90 Degrees Clockwise Around the Origin?
Show your class how to rotate a figure 90 degrees clockwise around the origin of a coordinate plane. The lecturer explains the concepts and steps involved in reflecting a figure across the y-axis. Consider providing this for learners as a reference and extra help when doing homework or class work.
5 mins 7th - 10th Math
This resource provides 5 different worksheets on the topic of polygons and symmetry. These worksheets cover rotational symmetry, lines of symmetry, symmetry of regular polygons, special quadiralaterals, and polygon transformation. The worksheets are complete and nicely put-together.
8th - 10th Math
Transformations and Matrices
There are four activities in this extensive lesson covering the identity matrix and scaling, the linear representation of translations, the linear representation of rotations, and reflections. In small groups, they use the Cabri II computer program to move objects and make observations.
9th - 11th Math
Plane figures have the ability to transform. They can move in three different ways. Students explore translations, rotations, and reflections as they relate to plane figures in geometry. Each student uses a digital camera to photograph 1 object, they then use their photo and PowerPoint to show how that object can be rotated and flipped.
NUMB3RS Activity: A Group of Symmetries
Students investigate the symmetries of an equilateral triangle. In this geometry lesson, students explore and visualize the reflection and rotational symmetries of an equilateral triangle. The activity relates the geometry of the triangle to some of the axioms commonly studied by high school students.
10th - 12th Math
In the "Cha Cha Slide" pupils need to slide, turn and reverse and that's exactly what this lesson is about. They will create a graphic organizer defining the terms: reflections, translations, and rotations then they will use Scott Foresman Investigations: Flip, Slides, and Area to show how plane figures move in space.
Middle and high schoolers solve and complete 13 different types of problems. First, they find the image of each point or segment for the given rotation. Then, pupils copy each figure and the given point and draw the image of each figure for the given rotation around that point.

Complex Number Properties
High schoolers experiment with complex numbers to see which properties of real numbers apply to the system of complex numbers and practice computations. The study of these properties is first explored by looking at rotational transformations and completing a chart of the rotations.
10th - 12th Math CCSS: Adaptable
Have your geometers take a huge leap forward in their understanding of rigid motion transformations. Given a pre-image and a final image, learners must precisely describe the transformation that moves from the first image to the next. Rotations, reflections, and translations (slides) are all covered.
