Let's Take a Spin: One-Axis Rotation

Investigate the effect of one-axis rotations on geometric figures. Scholars learn to use snap cubes and the right-hand rule to draw figures after rotations about the x-, y-, or z-axes. They try their hands at examples created by the partners in the fourth lesson of the series of five.
