PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

In order to get students writing about math topics I created this activity on the topic of transformations. In this project, students have to research several transformations covered in class. The students then have to create a brochure about each transformation. The project requires that the students include a picture of the transformation occurring, a description of the transformation, and a real-world application of the transformation.

I found that this was an easy way to get students writing about the math that we were studying in class. It also made sure that they were making real-world connections.

This project aligns to 8th grade Common Core Standards
8.G.2 - Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations; given two congruent figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the congruence between them.

8.G.3 - Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.

This project can also be altered to work with High School Geometry CCSS
