Reflection Worksheet description
This worksheet has six different problems with different variations on each problem. Student working this worksheet should understand how to plot points on a coordinate grid and integers. The first problem is the simplest reflection across the x-axis. This is to help students get started on the assignment. The next three problems have the students reflect on top of the original figure two are horizontal and one is vertical. Question 5 is my favorite because students must find the errors. If students can identify misconceptions in the problem then that is a good thing. Beware of the students not wanting to overlap original polygon in problems 3, 4, and 5. The last problem they must plot the polygon first.
Note: My philosophy for worksheets. If worksheet has a modified sheet, this is for my ELL, remedial, and my inclusion students. A modified sheet will have one of the problems worked out. This allows student to see how I want their answer arranged. Most of the students will receive the regular worksheet without modifications. I try to allow the last ten minutes of class for students to work independently on their homework. Because I know what misconceptions they will make it is easy for me to walk around help the students. If a student completes their homework then they are allowed to check their answers with the answer key. All of my worksheet has an answer key. I have points in a blue outlined text for each problem this allows students to score each problem in class during grading. While grading student put the number correct over the total points; then they must finding the percent from the fraction. If you find errors regards how small please e-mail me and inform me so I can make corrections.
