TRANSFORMATIONS, TESSELLATIONS & SMARTPHONES AMATYC Friday, November 1,2013
Common Core State Standards for Mathematics 2 Ask students to: Experiment with transformations in the plane Understand congruence in terms of rigid motions Understand similarity in terms of similarity transformations.
STEP 1: Take 3 pictures 13 Take 3 pictures with an electronic device of each category of geometric motions (not a picture of every transformation etc.), an example from one of each of the following categories:
Step 2: Place each picture in a Word Document. 15 IDENTIFY type of transformation INSERT “line of reflection” for symmetries Clarify if reflection or rotation symmetry or both IDENTIFY vertex of tessellation
16 Submit to your instructor as an attached word document, see below. Print a black and white copy, attach it to THIS handout and place in your portfolio.
17 Submit electronically to Connie McLean at: firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
18 Subject line: Math 200 and you and your partner’s full names. SAVE AS last name-last name Both partners should not submit, just copy your partner so they have evidence that it was sent before deadline.
