Finishing the Unit 1 Assessment and Moving Toward Unit 2 Similarity

Today the students will be finishing their Unit 1 assessments. 

 When they have finished their assessment they should log into their computers and go to their Tenmarks.com account and finish the assignments due for Unit 1.

Once they have finished their Tenmarks assignments they will need to complete the following Task.


1.  Go to www.google.com

2.  Type "famous cities from above" into the search bar.

3.  Find images of "famous cities from above" that have clearly defined parallel lines running through it.  They should look like the picture below of Barcelona, Spain.

4.  Once they have identified a picture they will need to right click on it and choose the option "SAVE AS"

5.  Save the file into the K: Drive into the Robinson Creative Lab folder as the "CityNameP?".  The above picture would be saved for a 4th Period student as "BarcelonaP4".

6.  Your goal is to find and save a minimum of 5 different examples.  If another example is already saved of that city in the Robinson Creative Lab folder from your Period, then you have to find another!  Good Luck searching!

This Week in Math - Transformations...... ROTATIONS

This week we are expanding our knowledge base into Rotations.  We have updated our Math Notebooks with Translations and Reflections.

Below is a quick review on how to quickly and easily find the new coordinates after a Rotation has taken place.


 Label each fourth

as follows:  90 degrees, 180 degrees, and 270 degrees.  Then flip the paper over and label each fourth as 90 degrees counter clockwise and 270 degrees counter clockwise.  You only need to label 3 on the front and 2 on the back.  Below is an example.

Follow along with EACH example in the tutorial on your Graph Paper.  This will be collected as your entry task for today!

The students will be getting a packet of rotations to perform which will be collected at the end of the period on Tuesday.
