This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 3, Unit 1, Grade 8. The purpose of this activity is for students to interpret the information needed to perform a transformation and draw an image resulting from the transformation. For digital classrooms, an additional purpose of this activity is for students to learn how to use the transformation tools available in geogebra. These tools will be used throughout the unit. As they become familiar with the dynamic tools, they see that geogebra places the image of a figure based on the instructions given by the user. Through hands-on experience with transformations, students prepare for the more precise definitions they will learn in later grades.
