TeacherKristin Andreason
Subject Area8th Grade Intensive Math
Grade Level8
Week #Four
Unit of InstructionUnit 8: Transformations
Standard(s) Taught
  • MAFS.8.G.1.1:  Verify experimental properties of rotations, reflections, and translations.  
  • MAFS.8.G.1.2:  Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a series of rotations, reflections, or translations.
  • MAFS.8.G.1.3:  Describe the effect of dilations, rotations, reflections, and translations on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

  • Students will understand that rotations, reflections, and translations are rigid transformations.
  • Students will be able to explain how transformations can be used to prove that two figures are congruent.
  • Students will be able to describe a series of rigid motions that will map one figure onto another.
Classroom Activities


  • Students will do Transformations Mystery Pictures activity.


  • Students will finish up the Transformations Mystery Pictures or work on IXL’s for core class.


  • We will go over dilations together and try a few examples.
  • Students will work on the Transformations Scavenger Hunt.
Assignments Due
