Growing Problem-Solvers 1A
- Matt Enlow
1) Using only the transformations given ("Move Right 1 Unit" and "Reflect Over Dotted Line"), move the blue triangle so that it coincides with the pink triangle. 2) What sequence of transformations accomplished this task? What sequence(s) did you try that didn't work? How did you figure it out? 3) Is there more than one "successful" sequence of transformations? How many can you find? Compare your sequences with a classmate. 4) Are there any properties common to all successful sequences? 5) Which successful sequence contained the fewest steps? How certain are you that it is the shortest successful sequence possible? 6) Are the blue triangle and the pink triangle congruent? How do you know?
