### Description

This is a graphic organizer for the four geometric transformations: translations, reflections, rotations, & dilations.

I usually do an introductory day, filling in the vocabulary and exploring examples. (I use a simple version of Robert Kaplinsky's Ms. Pacman lesson: https://robertkaplinsky.com/work/ms-pac-man/ -it's so fun!) For my honors classes, we do the rest of the foldable all at once, but for my regular classes we take a day on each transformation to fill in that section of the foldable and do some practice.

Afterwards, the foldable is a great tool to use during independent practice and study.

I’ve included my key, but feel free to adjust the wording to suit your teaching style! The key is also handy to print for absent students or as an accommodation.

### Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations:
Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations; given two congruent figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the congruence between them.
Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.
Understand that a two-dimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations; given two similar two-dimensional figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the similarity between them.
