Rotations in the Plane

Tenth graders investigate the rotation of a triangle.  In this geometry lesson, 10th graders explore the relationship between the pre-image and the image.  Students conjecture as to which properties of the triangle are preserved by the rotation and the dynamic nature of Cabri Jr. allows students to verify their conjectures.

Hi, I was recently hired as a middle school science teacher in Newark, NJ. I received a call on a Friday and was asked to begin the following Monday. As a new teacher, and with only 3 days to prepare, I was really feeling the pressure. The school requires 2 weeks of lesson plans every Sunday, so I began searching the web for help. Thank goodness I found Lesson Planet. I still use the site everyday to form great lessons and activities for the kids.
