Students learn how to rotate an object on a grid using a centre, direction and amount of turn.
Later, as learning progresses the centre is given as a coordinate pair and on a Cartesian axes.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
- All students should be able to perform a rotation where the centre touches the object.
- Most students should be able to perform a rotation on a grid.
- Some students should be able to perform and describe a rotation on a Cartesian grid.
