This 5 lesson packet of NYS Regents based questions is created for high school Geometry students to learn about translations, reflections, rotations, sequencing rigid motions, and constructing translations and reflections using a compass and a straightedge. It is designed for the teacher to guide the students through the packet (unless you choose to use it as regents-prep at the end of the year). Each of the 5 lessons are designed to take one 45 minute period to complete. Of course that depends on your students skill level and background knowledge. In total, this packet should last you a full 5 days of class time.

I incorporated my own Do Now into each of my lessons (not seen in the packets). The summary/wrap-up to each lesson is attached in this packet to each lesson.

I hope you find it useful for your students :)

Make formal geometric constructions with a variety of tools and methods (compass and straightedge, string, reflective devices, paper folding, dynamic geometric software, etc.).
Given a geometric figure and a rotation, reflection, or translation, draw the transformed figure using, e.g., graph paper, tracing paper, or geometry software. Specify a sequence of transformations that will carry a given figure onto another.
Develop definitions of rotations, reflections, and translations in terms of angles, circles, perpendicular lines, parallel lines, and line segments.
Given a rectangle, parallelogram, trapezoid, or regular polygon, describe the rotations and reflections that carry it onto itself.
Represent transformations in the plane using, e.g., transparencies and geometry software; describe transformations as functions that take points in the plane as inputs and give other points as outputs. Compare transformations that preserve distance and angle to those that do not (e.g., translation versus horizontal stretch).
