This is an EDITABLE note sheet to guide students through reflecting points across an axis on the coordinate plane! Students will plot points to create polygons and then reflect each polygon over the x-axis, the y-axis, or both! Students are able to visually see what reflecting the points looks like while reflecting polygons. There is a step-by-step guide for students to reference on the note sheet.
Points being plotted are to the nearest 0.5 or whole number.
This note sheet is differentiated to fit your students' needs! There is 1 note sheet that is differentiated in multiple ways:
- Blank note sheet
- Original points of the polygon plotted but not reflected
- Original points of the polygon plotted and reflected
There are 2 practice pages with three problems each. Each of these pages is differentiated in the same ways as listed above.
There are 2 more practice pages in which students plot points to create a mystery polygon and reflect it across both axes. Each of these pages is differentiated in the same ways as listed above.
There are 4 pages at the end of the document in which students can create their own polygon and practice reflecting it across an axis (or both axes!).
An answer key is included! (This can even be printed off and given to students as needed, too!)
This product is a .zip file that includes both a PDF and an editable PowerPoint file.
