This challenging, high student interest activity quickly allows you to see if your students have mastered all 4 transformations (translations, rotations, reflections & dilations) on a coordinate plane. There are 20 problems consisting mostly of muti-step transformations. Students can either use a rule to find the image points, given the pre-image, or they can manually perform the transformations on a "scrap" sheet of graph paper.
Once all 20 transformations are plotted, students then color in the shapes according to the directions. The end result is a colorful stained glass "window."
This can be used as an in class or home project or an assessment.
Common Core 8.G.A.3 - Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.
