Url: http://illuminations.nctm.org/unit.aspx?id=6024
Publisher: National Council of Teachers of Mathematics
Description: This geometry unit from Illuminations will help students learning about symmetry and rotation in figures and patterns. Using decorative figures and patterns, students will learn to recognize and classify symmetry. Students should have some basic knowledge of the fundamental transformations (translation, rotation and reflection- horizontal and vertical). The unit includes two lessons, each of which should require 1 class period to complete. The material is intended for grades 9-12.
