Transformations: Coordinate and Non-Coordinate Plane Task Cards!!!

This is a set of 48 task cards is meant to review/reinforce the all four types of transformations (reflections, translations, rotations and dilations in different ways and at different student levels.

**Note: While this is designed for high school Geometry students it could be used with advanced 8th graders as well.

**The cards are written to cover the major topics and are broken into four groups of 12. Topics covered are:
1. reflections (cards 1 – 12)
2. translations (cards 13 – 24)
3. rotations (cards 25 – 36)
4. dilations (cards 37 – 48).

Within each set of 12 cards there are three distinct types
1. 4 cards that deal with transforming points presented as coordinates (without pictures)
2. 4 cards that deal with transforming points (with pictures)
3. 4 cards that are either transformations off of the coordinate plane (reflectional symmetry, composition of reflections or rotational symmetry) or story problems (dilations)

I have presented the cards in two sets.
***Set one has the cards numbered 1 – 48 and one answer sheet that covers all 48 cards. The backs of the cards all say “Transformations Task Cards”.
***Set two has the cards renumbered 1-12 for each of the four types (with cards backs that identify the type of transformation that it is). There are separate answer sheets for each of the four “sets”.

Teaching Suggestions:
There are multiple ways to use these task cards. A few of them are:
***Pair students with a partner and have them pass the cards from pair to pair every 2 minutes.
***Separate the cards by concepts/difficulty and have students work in small groups depending on their abilities.
***Use the cards as part of a larger station activity.

I highly recommend printing multiple sets of task cards on card stock, laminating them and cutting them out to store in zip lock bags so that you have them for the next year/class. This ensures that you are not constantly needing to run a new set or giving up class time having the students cut them out!

There is also a typed answer key included!
