(TCV):

MCC912.G.CO.1 Know precise definitions of angle,
circle, perpendicular line, parallel line, and line segment, based on
the undefined notions of point, line, distance along a line, and
distance around a circular arc.

MCC912.G.CO.2 Represent
transformations in the plane using, e.g., transparencies and geometry
software; describe transformations as functions that take points in
the plane as inputs and give other points as outputs. Compare
transformations that preserve distance and angle to those that do not
(e.g., translation versus horizontal stretch).

MCC912.G.CO.3 Given a
rectangle, parallelogram, trapezoid, or regular polygon, describe the
rotations and reflections that carry it onto itself.

MCC912.G.CO.4 Develop
definitions of rotations, reflections, and translations in terms of
angles, circles, perpendicular lines, parallel lines, and line
segments.

MCC912.G.CO.5 Given a
geometric figure and a rotation, reflection, or translation, draw the
transformed figure using, e.g., graph paper, tracing paper, or
geometry software. Specify a sequence of transformations that will
carry a given figure onto another.
Prerequisites: As identified by the
CCGPS Frameworks
It is expected that
students will have prior knowledge/experience related to the concepts and
skills identified below. It may be necessary to preassess in order to
determine if time needs to be spent on conceptual activities that help
students develop a deeper understanding of these ideas.
·

plotting points on a
coordinate plane
·
 congruence of geometric
figures and the correspondence of their vertices, sides, and angles
·

recognizing line and
rotational symmetry
·

interpreting and sketching
views from different perspectives
·

calculate the perimeter and
area of fundamental geometric plane figures
·

use the concepts of ratio,
proportion, and scale factor to demonstrate the relationships between
similar plane figures

Unit Essential Questions:

What are the undefined
terms essential to any study of geometry?
Does location in a plane matter?
How do you determine the type of transformation that has occurred?
Does a transformation change an object's position and/or size?
How do we define and create geometric transformations?
How does the transformation of a geometric figure and a function
compare? What effects do transformations have on
geometric figures? Which tansformations create
isometries? How do we know which transformations have
created the mapping of an image? How can a reflection
be loke a rotation? How can the coordinate plane help
me understand properties of reflections, translations, and rotations?
What is the relationship between reflections, translations, and
rotations?
