Use this fun experiment to get students thinking about geometric transformations on the coordinate plane!
Students graph a design by connecting points. Then they switch the x- and y-coordinates to see how the design is transformed. (It is reflected over the line y = x.)
The word “WOW” appears when the points are graphed correctly.
This activity is meant as a quick introduction to transformations. Students get a glimpse of how working with ordered pairs can result in transformations.
