Transformations—The Next Level

Transform your geometry instruction by incorporating role play into math class. Pupils begin by completing an assessment to locate unknown angles, and then performing a simulation activity to better understand rotations, reflections, and translations. They complete the mathematical modeling exercise and conclude the lesson by participating in a class discussion to ensure their full understanding.
