This product contains notes to help students learn how to perform and identify rotations around the origin.
Includes: 6 pages of notes, a notebook sized poster, and a partner activity
Detailed explanation of contents:
Page 1: Guided notes - have students explore patterns to determine a “rule” for performing rotations
determine coordinates given a point
Determine points given a coordinate pair
Page 2: apply what was learned on page 1 with independent practice
Page 3: rotate triangles
analyze how the pre-image coordinate and post-image coordinates compare
Page 4: slightly more advance rotation of triangles because the original images overlap more than one quadrant
Page 5: Practice looking at images to identify the degrees of rotation and direction. Pictures are used instead of triangles to help students focus on the rotation and not points on the coordinate grid.
Page 6: Apply the skills learned on Page 5 with triangles.
Page 7: Graphic image showing what a rotated image looks like. Sized to cut out and fit in an interactive notebook (composition book size) or punch holes and put into a standard binder
2 pages (each partner gets both pages)
Each partner solves one side of the page. Partners then compare their rotated images and find a single coordinate pair that is the same. If there are no matching coordinates, partners need to work together to find their error.
Great way to encourage mathematical discussion!
Use this as an enrichment activity without a partner. Students can solve both sides of the page independently.
