Discovering Transformations in RIGID Motion with Geogebra (Preview) is a lesson that includes almost all of the Geometry Congruence Common Core State Standards in an activity that allows students to explore the concepts of TRANSLATION, REFLECTION, ROTATION, and CONGRUENCE by SSS, SAS and ASA using Geogebra, an online geometry web application.

** Make a Conjecture #8 is intended for HONORS Students.
** Make a Conjecture #7 can be omitted or done as a class exercise for low-level students, but is the expected output for regular students.
Many of our students are visual learners and I wanted to create a lesson that allowed them to learn visually as well as capture the information so that they could create a report once the lab exercises were complete because "Literacy in Content" is just as important as the "Math Concepts".
