Rotations on a Grid


Students learn how to perform rotations on a grid using a centre, direction and amount of turn.

As learning progresses, students describe rotations by finding the centre

Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to rotate an object 180 degrees about a centre on a Cartesian grid.
  • Most students should be able to rotate an object about a centre in any direction on a Cartesian grid.
  • Some students should be able to perform and describe rotations using a centre on a Cartesian grid.
