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.

Transformations and Matrices
There are four activities in this extensive instructional activity 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.

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
Learners 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 learners.

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.
