New Review What’s Your Coordinate?
Your middle schoolers will show what they know with their bodies when they become the coordinate plane in this conceptual development unit. Starting with the characteristics of the coordinate plane, learners develop their skills by acting out the graphing of points on the life-sized grid and then on paper.

Geometry: Translations and Reflections
Group work and participation is used to perform a specified translation or reflection. In this geometrical translation lesson, small groups of pupils are each given a shape to plot on a coordinate grid. Each shape is then translated or reflected according to the directions given to each group.

Transformations on the Coordinate Plane
Ninth graders explore transformations on a Coordinate plane. In this transformation activity, 9th graders predict the transformation that will occur in each situation. Students also explore the relationship between a picture and its image when it is flipped two different ways.
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.

Twelfth graders explore transforming matrices representing figures in the coordinate plane by entering data points of figures such as triangles and quadrilaterals into a matrix. Students dilate, rotate, reflect, and translate the figures by multiplying by translation matrices.

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.

Unit Squares and Triangles
This is an interesting geometry problem. Given the figure, find the area of a triangle that is created by the intersecting lines. The solution requires one to use what he/she knows about coordinate geometry, as well as triangle and angle congruence, rigid motion, rotation, translation, and the distance formula.

How Do You Use a Graph to Translate a Figure Diagonally?
This presentation is pretty straightforward in illustrating how to translate a figure on the coordinate plane. Watch the instructor follow the directions to translate the figure four units to the right and six units down.

How Do You Use Coordinates to Translate a Figure Horizontally?
There are many ways to transform a figure on a coordinate plane. This problem requires the movement to be four units horizontally to the right. Using the original coordinate pairs, a positive 4 can be added to each x-value to get the new coordinate points.
