PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

BOOM! POW! WHAMO! If those words remind you of your 7th Period Class, I... think you need to find someone that can help you. If your kids dig comics and comic-book movies. This might be perfect for them!

Turn your Pre-Algebra Geometry classroom into Superhero City while teaching the useful skills of rigid motion transformations. Specifically focusing on translations and reflections, heroes paired with a specific geometric shape, have to zap enemies all over the coordinate grid into submission to save their city. Students will use cutouts of shapes to turn this into a hands-on math project that will serve many different types of learners and plays into their childhood superhero infatuations!

In this 25 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, handout resources for students to use, and an answer key. In all it is four different assignments --

-- ““The Euclideans”. Students will understand how to use translation and reflections in the plane. They will be able to write this in coordinate notation. This is a task that intends to scaffold the concepts that will be in the more challenging problems.

-- “Join the Squad”. Students will use translations and reflections with multiple functions to zap the enemies into submission. Each Mission has slightly different requirements so encourage students to read carefully.

-- “Super Power Rotations”. This introduces students to rotating shapes in the plane.

and finally... "The Boss Challenge”. Students must put all of their skills together in order to translate, reflect and rotate shapes in such a way to eliminate all enemies. Students will need to figure out a solution that will hit all of the enemies, without standing on a beam or a baddie. They also cannot hit any kids.
