The Geometry of Indigenous Art
Students examine the concepts of symmetry, rotations, reflections, translation, dialations, and tessellations and apply them to indigenous art. They also do Internet research and create artwork (painting, pottery, computer graphic design).

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...

Using Symmetry to Create Corporate Logos
Young mathematicians investigate the use of symmetry in graphic design. After first learning about reflection, translational, and rotational symmetry, children use this new knowledge to identify symmetry in letters of the alphabet and...

A World of Symmetry: Math-Geometry
Define and identify the 3 basic forms of symmetry translation, rotation, and glides with your class. They cut out and arrange paper pattern blocks to illustrate symmetry, create a Cartesian graph, and design a rug with a symmetrical...
