STRAND: Geometry

BAND: Transformations- 8.G. 9

Aim: Students will be able to identify and describe reflections over a given line

Language Objective: Reflection, Line of symmetry, Image.

• Mini-lesson: Review definition of Reflection Line of Symmetry Go over rules of reflection over X-Axis, Y-Axis and Line y=x.
• Examples: Reflect over the X-Axis, Y-Axis and over the line Y=X the following triangle. A (1, 3) B (2, 5) C (5, 1)
• H-A-G: Reflect a triangle whose coordinates are M(1, -3), N(2, -4), O( 4, -8). Reflect it over the x-axis, and the y-axis.
• Work period: Students work in their expert groups. They use their grade 8 mathematics pages 231-233 for activity A. Students use their NYS 8TH Math pages 162-164 for activity B
• On a coordinate plane, the following rule applies to the coordinates of a point and its image after a reflection in the y-axis.
• P(x , y)→P’(-x , y) For example: the point (2 , 3) will become (-2 , 3) under a reflection in the y-axis.

Try this: Give the coordinates of the point after a reflection in the y-axis.

• D (4, 3)→ D’ ( , )
• E (5, -1)→ E’ ( , )
• F (-8, -6)→ F’ ( , )

Summary of Ideas

• The order in which the original figure was labeled was reversed in the image after the reflection.
• The shape of the original figure did not change in the image after thereflection.
• The size of the original figure did not change in the image after the reflection.
• Each point and its image are equidistant from the line of reflection.
• In a reflection, only the x-coordinate becomes negative after a reflection in the y-axis.
