Days 1-3 are focused on giving students background knowledge on translation, rotation, and reflection. Students will spend one day on each concept. Students will draw each concept multiple times and then focus on recognizing how the coordinate pairs change for each type of transformation. After students draw the concepts in their notes, they will then practice the concept in their workbook for homework. When possible, students will be given the chance to discover what pattern is seen with the coordinate pairs as transformations are performed. While students are practicing the concept it will give me time to circulate and check for students who are having difficulty with the concept.
Focus Q: What is a _____ and, what does it look like, and how does it effect the ordered pairs of a shape?
