PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

7 pages. I created this project to be a self-directed unit for my geometry students in the transformations chapter. Students learn new terminology: image, preimage, isometry, reflection, line of symmetry, rotation, translation, glide reflection, tessellation, etc... and then create and identify these types of transformations though the creation of a tile and a quilt block.

Download the free preview to see the instruction page. Some sample questions from the student response sheets ask: "Describe any rotations in your 4"x4" tile. As part of your description for each rotation, show a sketch of your tile with the center of rotation and angle of rotation drawn in." "Describe the movement that your tile makes from position A to position B (in the overall quilt block). Be as specific as possible, using the geometry terms from this chapter and drawing a sketch of any appropriate lines or centers of symmetry."


This particular version of the project uses cool colors (blues & greens), but I could easily change the color scheme to anything you like. Just let me know and I'll get it posted ASAP.

Comprehensive Grading Rubric is attached. Allow at least three days or give as a homework project over a week or so.

I am a new seller... your feedback is my foundation to a good start!
