This month we embark upon the adventure of math learning in motion. (literally).
Students are working through many transformation activities focusing on concepts such as translations (slides), rotations (turns), and reflections (flips). Although for some the terminology has changed since their younger years they are really enjoying the hands on activities using grid paper, dot paper, and manipulatives.
Interesting sites to further our study this unit include:
Reflection, Rotations, & Translation
Lines of Symmetry
Math and Art
Gangnam Style Math (Transformation Style)-Video
