CCSS.Math.Content.HSG-CO.A.2: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Represent transformations in the plane using, e.g., transparencies and geometry software; describe transformations as functions that take points in the plane as inputs and give other points as outputs. Compare transformations that preserve distance and angle to those that do not (e.g., translation versus horizontal stretch).

CCSS.Math.Content.HSG-CO.A.5: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Given a geometric figure and a rotation, reflection, or translation, draw the transformed figure using, e.g., graph paper, tracing paper, or geometry software. Specify a sequence of transformations that will carry a given figure onto another.

Reviewer Comments:

This is a set of exercises showing the relationship between sets of functions that can be transformed into each other. It is an example of the best use of graphing calculators; students can achieve insight into mathematical relationships without the drudgery that would be required without use of the calculator.
