Product Description
Two copies per page to save paper! Students translate and rotate a triangle around a given set of points using a compass and straight edge. The resulting image will be a parallelogram. Students are asked to make a conjecture about why the construction yields a parallelogram and justify their answer by relating the properties of a parallelogram to the properties of translations and rotations. This activity is a great opportunity to revisit congruence and properties of polygons in terms of rigid transformation.

This item is also available as part of my Transformations Bundle!
