Transformations. Geometry Module for Use in a Mathematics Laboratory Setting.
Brotherton, Sheila; And Others
This is one of a series of geometry modules developed for use by secondary students in a laboratory setting. The thrust of this module is to introduce the student to transformations by having the student physically transform sets of points. Heavy use of manipulatives is made to aid the student in the transforming activity. Individual sections included in this module are: (1) What is a Transformation; (2) Paper Folding Machine; (3) Transparent Mirror Machine; (4) Symmetry (optional); (5) Reflecting a Reflection (composition of reflections); (6) The Rotor; (7) The Translator; (8) Isometrics; (9) Size Transformations; and (10) Similarity Transformations.
