Activity Overview

In this activity, students review basic geometry vocabulary while investigating reflections on a coordinate grid.

Key Steps

  • Image

    In this activity, students review basic geometry vocabulary while investigating reflections on a coordinate grid. Students begin by looking at the reflection of a single point across the x-axis and then the y-axis.

    Then, students explore a list of coordinates that form a figure. Students then draw conclusions on the changes in x- and y-coordinates if a reflection occurs across both axes.
