Exploring Common Core Topics in Transformational Geometry with TI-Nspire™ Technology

Technology: TI‑Nspire™ Technology
Topic: CCSS
Speakers: Dan Ilaria, Steve West

The Common Core State Standards place an added emphasis on transformational geometry, and students are now expected to investigate similarity and congruence through the lens of transformations.

In the webinar, we will explore how TI-Nspire technology can help students better understand congruence in terms of rigid motions. See how premade, dynamic simulations can provide opportunities for students to predict the effects of a given rigid motion on a given figure. Learn how to cultivate students’ understanding of similarity in terms of similarity transformations. By investigating and verifying the properties of dilations, students can develop a deeper understanding of similarity. (2014)
