Graphic Art Contest
Creativity is endless when your mathematicians take a simple image and use transformations to create their own poster inspired by geometry. While certain rotations and reflections are required, learners will be able to create ten new images by flipping, moving, spinning, and zooming their original using Word.

Here is a lesson plan that starts out with learners creating congruent figures by drawing the exact same polygon as their partner. From here, they have a discussion about why what they drew is an exact copy, followed by other activities that look at different shapes, some with transformations, to determine their congruence.

Carrying a Figure onto Itself
Your geometry learners will be pros at transforming figures using rotations and reflections after this hands-on lesson. Collaborative groups, with access to geometric construction tools, analyze and report the series of reflections and rotations that were used to produce an image from its pre-image.

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.

Verifying Triangles are Congruent
Here the focus is on triangle congruence. Through an activity that requires investigation, questioning, and working together, geometers learn to identify corresponding parts of triangles to determine if the triangles are congruent. Triangles are transformed through reflection, rotation, and translation.
