These sites are about geometric transformations including sites to help students visualize shapes after they have been reflected, rotated, flipped, and translated. Includes lesson plans and printable card games as well as virtual interactive manipulative that lets students change the shapes online. There are also links to eThemes Resources on transforming shapes, visual spatial skills, and shapes.
Learn about different ways to transform a shape including translation, rotation, reflection and enlargement. Include a simulation and questions for each topic. Note: The "Talk" link is a link to discussion forum.
These sites help students visualize what shapes look like after they have been reflected, rotated, flipped, and translated. Includes virtual manipulatives that lets students change the shapes online. There are links to eThemes Resources on shapes, symmetry, and tessellations.
These sites focus on visual-spatial skills. Includes information about orthographic and isometric projections, rotation of objects from different axes, cutting planes and cross-sections, object reflection and transformation, and symmetry. There are suggested ideas, simulations, and activities that can be used to promote visual and spatial skills. There is a link to eThemes Resource on Geometry: Symmetry.
These sites are about shapes including quadrilaterals and polygons. Includes definitions and examples of various shapes in everyday life. There are interactive sites with games, manipulatives, and animated movies. Includes links to eThemes Resources on symmetry, triangles, lines, tessellations, and geometric solids.
