Addressed:                 24. Demonstrate conceptual and practical understanding of symmetry, similarity, and
                            congruence and identify similar and congruent figures (G-2-M)
                           25. Predict, draw and discuss resulting changes in lengths, orientation, angle measures, and
                            coordinates when figures are translated and/or reflected across horizontal or vertical lines, and rotated
                            on a grid (G-3-M) (G-6-M)
Mini-Lesson Procedure:
Objectives:                Objectives: Linear Equations
(list all that apply)          1. The learner will explore transformations and determine properties that remain fixed.

Procedures:                Type in the cell below.

Essential Questions:
   1. What is a transformation?
   2. How are their changes in length, angle measurement, and orientation different from the original figure?
   3. Where do we see them and use them in your everyday life?

Pre-Assessment for Linear Equations Activity
          a. Pre-Assessment: The teacher will pre-assess students’ knowledge of basic measurements in length,
             basic angle measurements, similar & proportional shapes, and other basic skills needed for coordinate

      2. PowerPoint as a teacher tool: The teacher will present the LEAP 21 warm up exercises to use as an
         introduction/teaching video from Unitedstreaming, Glencoe transparency, other lesson samples as needed and
         close with a 3-2-1 summarization.

      3. The teacher will break the students into groups, using the jigsaw puzzle concept for

      4. Students will watch the Unitedstreaming video clip-Translations and work through the activities as guided

Jigsaw Group Activity: The students will work in groups to arrive with the following information to include:
Characteristics---The relationship of the lengths of the sides, angle measurements, orientation of the original figure, and
the quadrant of the new figure.
Examples---Create a list of at least 3 or more real world examples.

                        - Teacher will pause the video and students will complete each activity as needed throughout the ppt.

      5. After monitoring and determining student needs the teacher will provide more examples (if needed).
      6. As the lesson continues with the next video clip-Rotation-the students are allowed to choose a grouping strategy
      (this is a flexible grouping strategy- the teacher determines if activity allows for student selected groups or teacher
      7. As the lesson continues with the next video clip-Reflection-the students will continue to use the same grouping
      strategy, as the teacher monitors and determines the students’ needs.
     8.     As the lesson continues with the next video clip-Dilation-the students continue a grouping strategy as the
           teacher determines if activity allows for student selected groups or teacher selected.
     9.    Come together as a class and allow each group 3-5 minutes to review their type of transformation to the class.
     10.   **Each student (in assigned group) receives a sheet of 1 inch grid paper. The group should cut off the edges of
           their grid and then tape the four sheets together to form a large coordinate grid. The origin is the center where all
           four sheets meet. Have the students label the x and y axes. Label the grid from -12 to 12 on both axes.
     11.   Distribute Student Activity T-1 and have the students cut the geometric shapes described on Student Activity 5.2 from 3 x 5
           index cards. It may be helpful to label angles on the original side and the angles on the reflected side. Make sure they know
           which is which.
     12.   Have students place the rectangle in the first quadrant with vertex A at (2,3) and B and (2,6). Tell the students to record the
           original position coordinates on Student Activity T-2 in the column one of the table.
     13.   Make sure there are no questions and complete the translation, rotation and reflection of the rectangle as a whole class
           discussion. Students may wish to use tracing paper to rotate the rectangle because this seems to be the most difficult
           transformation for them.
     14.   Have the students complete Student Activity T-2 using their trapezoid, right triangle, and isosceles triangle. Remind them to
           always return their shape to the original position before making a transformation. On the ¼” grid paper, have students
           graph the original position, rotation and translation and reflection for each polygon. (They may need more than one sheet of
     15.   After the class has had time to complete Student Activity T-2, have the groups make some conjectures about how they might
           be able to determine the positions of polygons after a transformation from the information in the chart. (Are your original
           conjectures similar to your new ones? Did you leave some out or get any wrong?)
     16.   Add vocabulary words to journal: transformation, translation, rotation, reflection, point of rotation, line of symmetry,
           vertices, congruence
     17.   Continue with the PPT for the informal assessment, “Did you grasp it?”
     18.   Distribute grid paper for the students to complete the constructive response question.
