206- Transforming Student Thinking about Congruent Figures

Friday, October 28, 2016: 1:30 PM-2:45 PM
222 AB (Phoenix Convention Center)


Lead Speaker:
Kim Thomas


Participants will be presented with pairs of geometric figures. Through exploration, we will devise strategies for using one or more rigid motion transformations to confirm congruency. As we proceed, we'll analyze the merits of paper folding, patty paper, compass-straightedge, and handheld technology as transformation tools.
