Hey ho! Friday Fave here with new activities and some activity updates!
Here’s what’s new.
Shifting Shapes elicits informal language about how shapes move in the plane, and it includes a delightful Kaleidoscope Playground.
Polygraph: Rigid Transformations puts that informal language to use, and gives teachers opportunities to refine and formalize that language in the service of precise, clear communication.
Next up, a new version of Transformation Golf, and an updated interface.
Transformation Golf: Non-Rigid Motion expands the repertoire of transformations to include dilation. Now you can stretch and shrink your hexagon into place in addition to spinning, sliding, and turning.
In related news, we have updated the underlying technology for Transformation Golf, including better styling for the pre-image and image, and improved controls for specifying your transformations. You’ll see these improvements in the previously released Transformation Golf: Rigid Motion.
