Discovering Transformations in RIGID Motion with Geogebra (Preview) is a PROJECT-BASED EXPERIMENTATION & DISCOVERYlesson that includes almost all of the Geometry Congruence Common Core State Standards for High School Math, in an activity that allows students to explore the concepts of TRANSLATION, REFLECTION, ROTATION, and CONGRUENCE by SSS, SAS and ASA.
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 done because "Literacy in Content" is just as important as the "Math Concepts".
The pages included in the samples are from the actual file which contains:
-- 3 Step-by-Step Guided Activities
-- 6 Questions Related to the Activities to extend their knowledge
-- 2 Make a Conjecture Questions (Mail Merge Rubric
-- Data Collection Sheets
-- Data Analysis Sheets
-- Student Copy of the Rubric
-- Teacher Copy of the Rubric (also available as .docx to support mail merge
-- Teacher Data Collection Sheets
-- CCSS Listing
-- Teacher Notes (a list of supplies and activities before LAB DAY)
