164- Focus on Transformational Geometry, Congruence, Similarity, and Video Game Application

Friday, October 28, 2016: 11:00 AM-12:00 PM
106 A (Phoenix Convention Center)


Lead Speaker:
Penny Gennuso


In this session, we will examine why we study transformational geometry and how to use translations, reflections, and rotations in the plane to develop a precise definition of congruence. Basic rigid motions are embedded in Eureka/EngageNY (grade 8). Investigative activities will be used to clarify the meaning of congruence and to review the foundational and practice standards and other topics.
