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...

New Review Geometry: Transformations, Congruence, and Similarity
Rigid motions are to congruence as what are to similarity? Investigate properties of rigid motions and define congruence in terms of rigid motions with the ninth chapter of a 10-part eighth grade workbook series. The lesson then prompts...

What Are Similarity Transformations, and Why Do We Need Them?
It's time for your young artists to shine! Learners examine images to determine possible similarity transformations. They then provide a sequence of transformations that map one image to the next, or give an explanation why it is not...
