This unit plan is for a Transformations unit in High School Geometry. It introduces students to the four main transformations: translation, reflection, rotation, and dilation. The lessons focus on real-world connections, including video game and computer graphics, and a chance for students' to create their own fractal images using transformations. It presents both hands-on and algorithmic methods of transforming shapes, as well as chances for students to use GeoGebra to visually verify their work and experiment with different transformations.
The unit plan is for a two-week unit of 50 minute daily classes. It includes instructions for using the free software used in the plan, printouts for the students, and a unit exam for the last day of the unit.
