Transformations are very present in our surrounding and they have been part of our daily lives ever since. From simple objects such as mirrors and toys to skyscrapers and cars, the four basic transformations are very evident. They function to make our lives easier and more convenient. Their uses are truly relevant as they add efficiency in our work and lifestyle. Not only that, they are also used in many fields as a form of art and design, so that objects possess more beauty and personality. Likewise, regularity in objects can be easily be checked by applying the ideas of transformations. Many of the things we enjoy nowadays are products of transformation concepts such as the developments in science and technology, architecture, communications, and transportation.
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.
HERE ARE SOME OF THE PHOTOS TAKEN IN CLASS WHILE STUDENTS WERE EXCITINGLY DOING THEIR PROJECTS.
