Typing WARM UP

Class Activity

Station 1
Students will be completing a challenge on Kahoot.  This online resource challenges students in a Timed Testing like environment.  It allows them to compete with each other while mastering their skills with Transformational Geometry.

Kahoot - Click Here

Station 2
Today the students will continue to finish their Peer Editing.  This will help them learn how to write an academic paragraph for math while also learning how to better explain their thinking.  They will be working in groups of 3's to finish the problem and write their paragraphs.

Station 3
In Station 3 the students will be logging into their Quizlet Accounts and playing a round of Gravity.  When they have finished their round of Gravity, they may practice their Transtar skills.

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.

When they have finished their test they need to complete any modules in Tenmarks they have not completed yet.


Lastly they may play Transtar if time remains.
