The following is a TRANSFORMATIONAL GEOMETRY UNIT which includes FULL DETAILED LESSON plans (there are 7 of them provided in this unit package ALONG WITH a quiz and a culminating tiling assignment INCLUDING an assessment tool used for teacher marking).
WITH THIS DOWNLOAD, you will receive full transformational geometry lesson plans covering the following topics:
- What are transformations such as translations, reflections and rotations?
- Using/Combining transformations such as translations, reflections and rotations (taught through the video game Tetris)
- Congruent shapes
- Understanding similar figures in transformational geometry
- Identifying line symmetry in transformational geometry
- Identifying rotational symmetry in different polygons
- Making 'tiling patterns' using transformations and different shaped polygons (This lesson ALSO includes a SUMMITIVE ASSIGNMENT and ASSESSMENT TOOL used for teacher marking)
...also included is a Transformational Geometry Quiz
Within these lessons you will find fun activities, a math challenge worksheet, mini-assessment tasks, demonstrations, and collaborative and individual work that can used for Diagnostic, Formative and Summative assessment purposes.
The Tiling Pattern Assignment INCLUDES an Assessment Tool that teachers can use to mark student work.
