Experiment with Transformations
Rotate it, reflect it, and slide it! This lesson plan gives your geometers an opportunity to explore transformations in the coordinate plane. Working in small groups, learners travel to four stations with a figure you have assigned them...

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...

Supplementary, Complementary, And Vertical Angles
Middle and high schoolers construct parallel lines cut by a transversal using the Geometer's Sketchpad. They measure angles formed, compare angle measurements, explore various activities on Geometer's Sketchpad, and complete a worksheet.
