Introduction to Transformations

Activity Overview

The purpose of this activity is to use the dynamic capabilities of the TI-Nspire to help students make conjectures about transformations.

Before the Activity

The teacher should familiarize himself/herself with the file Transformations.tns. See TransformationsActivity.doc and pdf for step-by-step instructions.

During the Activity

The teacher could use the student transformations file to have students perform the transformations themselves, but the activity was written with the idea of the teacher using the file to present to the whole class.
Be sure to use the student file on the handheld; otherwise they will not be able to view the whole screen.
