Here is a lesson 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.

What Brand Are You - Lazy, Crazy, or Rockin'?
Cowboys or geometers perform transformations. In this transformation lesson, learners explore cattle-branding symbols. They explore reflections, rotations, and translations and discuss cattle brands. Afterward, create their own cattle brands.

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.

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.

Proof of the Pythagorean Theorem Using Transformations
Middle and high schoolers construct a triangle using Cabri Jr. They construct squares on each of the legs and hypotenuse of the triangle. Pupils show that the area of the squares on the leg equal the area of the square on the hypotenuse.

Discovering Math: Exploring Geometry
Apply geometric properties and formulae for surface area and volume by constructing a three-dimensional model of a city. Learners use similar and congruent figures and transformations to create a city of at least 10 buildings. They trade with classmates, who calculate surface area and volume of some of the structures.

Transformations - Rotations in the Coordinate Plane
In this geometry activity, math scholars brainstorm examples of rotations. Using the SMARTboard, students observe a rotation. They create their own rotation using graph paper. Finally, pupils complete a worksheet and graph rotations.

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.
