This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 6, Unit 1, Grade 8. This info gap activity gives students an opportunity to determine and request the information needed to perform a transformation in the coordinate plane. A sample pair of cards looks as follows: Students likely need several rounds to determine the information they need. They need to know which transformations were applied (i.e., translation, rotation, or reflection). They need to determine the order in which the transformations were applied. They need to remember what information is needed to describe a translation, rotation, or reflection. Monitor for students who successfully determine or remember each of these three important pieces of information as well as students who have partially but not completely solved the problem.
