Translations and Reflections - Lesson Plan Volume 25
Students will use the X-Y Coordinate Geoboard to create translations and reflections of specific shapes. They will need to have prior knowledge and experience with the four quadrants of the coordinate plane as well as an understanding of both the x and y axes. During this lesson, they will be introduced to the meaning of translation and reflection. They will have a chance to practice the concepts using a variety of problems across all quadrants of the coordinate plane. The lesson is meant as a basic introduction to the concept of transformations.
Students will be able to…
- Analyze how (x, y) coordinates change when performing translations and reflections.
- Identify the differences/similarities between translations and reflections.
- Conclude that each type follows a given set of rules.
