Mini-Project on Translations, Reflections, and Rotations

1 Jun

I’ve been incorporating more art into math this year. This project continues this theme. I had the students draw a pre-image, and then accurately translate it, reflect it, and rotate it into images. They could do these transformations in any order; they just need to document all the transformation rules and label the vertices correctly. Here’s some student work: 2014-05-30 13.29.35 2014-05-30 06.49.28 2014-05-30 06.49.36 2014-05-30 06.50.03 2014-05-30 06.50.31

    I absolutely love this idea! I was trying to come up with a transformations project and stumbled across yours! Do you have your original directions that you gave to your students? Cannot wait to have them do this! 🙂

    This project is inspiring. I really enjoyed looking at the finished products. Do you have a rubric that you gave students? Thanks for sharing.

      Hi Pam,
      I know this reply is long overdue. I just added my simple rubric to the transformation project post.
      Pam 🙂
