This is a compilation of teaching materials to be used as a resource for exploring transformations of two-dimensional figures in the coordinate plane. This addresses the Common Core Standard 8.G in Geometry, which states that students should be able to “Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.”
These pages cover four days of lesson plans to address the different transformations. Included in each are assessments and in class activities. These activities are each accompanied by connections to the standards, teacher implementation tools and strategies, handouts and answer keys. The following lessons are intended for block scheduling but may be split up among more days to accommodate shorter class periods in order to fully address the standard.
