Transformational Puppet

Published on 11/04/2008

Activity Overview

This activity allows students to practice their skills of reflecting on a line and translating on a vector.

The instructions don't ask for creativity but students who finish early can enjoy being creative with this activity.

Before the Activity

Students should be familiar with reflections and translations.

During the Activity

The students receive the handout and they work independently. The teacher is monitoring progress and helping as needed.

After the Activity

I allowed the students to show their puppet to the class, using the computer software. The students were very proud of their accomplishments.
