Continue Maps and Coordinates

  1. Introduce or review translation rules.
  2. Students practice moving shapes in the coordinate plane using translation rules.
  3. Students meet in teams to discuss how maps and coordinates apply to their arena. Teams choose methods for design (Google SketchUp or hand drawings.)

Tips and Tools

Have students download and test Google SketchUp. Assign students homework to learn the software if necessary.
