Rotations, translations, and reflections on the coordinate plane- Visual Interactive "Doodle Notes"
When students color or doodle in math class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:
- new learning
- relaxation (less math anxiety)
- visual connections
- better memory & retention of the content!
Students fill in the sheets, learn the formulas, answer the questions, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a study guide later on.
- notation for image and preimage (prime notation for points)
- how to reflect, rotate, or translate a figure
- preserving size so that original image and translated image are congruent
- practice & examples for each
- letter reminders for each (slide, flip, around)
- compound (2 step) transformations
- isometry definition
