Home / Presentation / Mira, Mira on the Wall – How Should I Teach Geometric Transformations?
Abstract/Description:

This presentation addresses the relationship among curriculum, teachers’ interpretations, and student understanding of geometric transformations. We present results from eight teachers in four states across the US on how teachers’ interpretations of grade 8 geometry standards regarding transformations influence students’ understanding. We will share practices and strategies that we have identified as helpful for students to understand rotations, reflections, and translations.
