Transformations with Cabri Jr.

Published on 06/09/2008

Activity Overview

In this activity, get instructions on how to perform transformations using the Cabri Jr. Application on the TI-84 Plus.

Before the Activity

Students may have previously experienced these transformations in your classroom using pencil and paper techniques. If so, use this activity as an enhancement tool. If transformations were not previously discussed, this activity can be used as a discovery activity.

During the Activity

Use this handout to demonstrate transformations in your geometry classroom. Guide students or allow them to follow the handout independently. Also, add coordinates to use this in your Algebra classroom.

After the Activity

Use TI-Navigator to do the more challenging activities together as a class. In the Activity Center, allow students to submit the coordinates of both the preimage and image. Allow students to resubmit coordinates as needed.
