Last year I did not teach this unit before the students took the CAASPP Summative Assessment. This year I wanted to teach this unit before the CAASSP, so I replaced the Exponent Properties and Scientific Notation Unit with this unit. #gooddecision

The first rigid transformation the unit focused on was Translations.

I wanted the students to practice rigid transformations by making their own figures and transformation for each of the rigid transformations so I created a poster task. The poster task was split into parts and done over multiple days. Each time the students learned a new transformation, they would complete the next part of the task for that transformation and add it to their poster.

__iMath Lesson - Rigid Transformations Poster Task - (Part One and Two)__
Students showed their
understanding of this concept in my Showbie Poster Task on Rigid Transformations. Students created their own figure and translated the figure using their own rule.

**iMath – Practice in Tenmarks and Buzzmath**Students used Tenmarks and Buzzmath to practice translations.

The next part of the unit focused on Rigid Transformations and Reflections.

__iMath Lesson - Rigid Transformations Poster Task - (Part Three)__
Students continued to show their understanding of this concept in my Showbie Poster Task on Rigid Transformations. Students created their own figure and reflected the figure using their own rule.

**iMath – Practice in Tenmarks and Buzzmath**Students used Tenmarks and Buzzmath to practice reflections.

The next part of the unit focused on Rigid Transformations and Rotations.

__iMath Lesson - Rigid Transformations Poster Task - (Part Four)__
Students contined to show their understanding of this concept in my Showbie Poster Task on Rigid Transformations. Students created their own figure and rotated the figure using their own rule.

__iMath – Showbie Rotations Assignment__
Students practiced rotations in my Showbie Assignment.

**iMath – Practice in Tenmarks and Buzzmath**__The next part of the unit focused on Composition of Transformations.__

__iMath – Socrative (Self-paced) “Digital Task Cards”__
Students practiced performing multiple transformations in my Socrative (self-paced) "Digital Task Cards"

__Socrative: Rigid Transformations "Team Task"__We ended the unit with my Socrative Collaborative "Team Task" on Rigid Transformations.

__Unit Reflection__This unit needed more time, but there just wasn't any time. This was the first year that my students were really understanding how to perform the transformations and use that to understand congruence. I decided not to focus on dilations in this unit and only focused on the three rigid transformations.

Awesome post!!!! I am currently working through this unit! I wish I had found this blog earlier. Do you mind sharing where I access these resources for future implementation?

ReplyDeleteGreat Job students!!!!
