Transformations are very present in our surrounding and they have been part of our daily lives since time immemorial. Recognising their existence plays a very important role in deepening student’s understanding on the concepts and details of geometrical transformations.
To provide opportunities for my students to identify occurrences of mathematics (specifically transformations) in real life situations, I asked my Grade 10 classes to look around and identify cases of reflections, rotations, translations and enlargements, snap some evidences and display them in any artistic way possible. They were given an entire week’s sessions to produce and share what they have learned in this project.
One of the submitted projects is a Vlog on Transformations.
