This extremely user friendly PowerPoint has animated step-by-step directions on transformations. 26 slides with animations allow you to control the pace and amount of content. It is often color-coded, and helps streamline the learning process. This free PowerPoint is stripped down to the essentials and does not cover the material to the same depth as the other PowerPoints. This PowerPoint could enhance what is typically the seventh chapter of high school Geometry textbooks or help supplement them (with the exception of extra practice problems). I utilize this PowerPoint in my classroom which completed this school year with a 91% pass rate on the Florida Geometry End of Course Exam (compared to the state average of 63%).
You will find the easy to understand definitions, many example problems, and a huge number of practice slides extremely useful in assisting instruction. Content covered includes transformations, reflections, rotations, translations, coordinate Geometry, and much more. I have spent many hours working on this resource, and it is more comprehensive and accessible than anything I have been able to find on the internet. This PowerPoint is free. Again this freebie is intended to simply introduce essential concepts, other PowerPoints priced at $10 cover material much more in depth. I plan on posting 12 PowerPoints (one for each chapter in our textbook). Whether you are a high school, middle school, or elementary school math teacher, you will find this to be an engaging tool. A person could easily teach him/herself about transformations with this PowerPoint. Enjoy!
