Transformations on Your SMARTBoard

The word transform means "to change." In geometry, a transformation changes the position of a shape on a coordinate plane. Teach your students how to visualize the moving of a shape from one position to another with the Transformations Whiteboard Teacher Pack. Appropriate for grades 4 - 8, you can use the Flash mini-movies to teach students how to:

  • Predict and describe positions and orientations of two-dimensional shapes after transformations such as reflections, rotations, and translations.
  • Draw the results of translations, reflections, and rotations of objects in the coordinate plane, and determine properties that remain fixed.
The teacher pack includes the following:
