In the Rotations “lesson bundle”, students will explore rotations and their properties. Throughout the lessons, students are encouraged to make observations related to their investigations, leading them to discovering the properties of rotated figures. Explorations can be done via rotations on a grid and without a grid.

In the Translations “lesson bundle”, students will explore translations and their properties. Throughout the lessons, students are encouraged to make observations related to their investigations, leading them to discovering the properties of translated figures. Explorations can be done via translations on a grid by direction, or using a vector.

Model the optimization area problem for fencing on 3 sides. In Year 1, a linear relation between length and width is demonstrated. In Year 2, a quadratic relation between area and width is demonstrated. In year 3, students can compare their Calculus solution with the one provided on the Math Notes page. In addition, there is an activity to learn how to construct the TINspire fence problem. Selfdirected instructions with keystrokes are included with each activity.
