Specific Curriculum Outcomes
G01 Students will be expected to draw and interpret top, front, and side views of 3D objects composed of right rectangular prisms.
G02 Students will be expected to develop an understanding of the congruence of polygons under a transformation.
*** Note that Section 8.4A in the Nova Scotia Curriculum Companion (Transformations on a Coordinate Grid) replaces section 8.4, 8.5 and 8.6 in the Student Text.

G01 activities
 Using Cubes and Isometric Drawings from NCTM Illuminations  An interactive geometry investigation in which students explore polyhedra using different representations and perspectives for three dimensional block figures.
 Cliko and Architecto from Foxmind Games  Cliko and Architecto are two games that get students to build structures from drawings. Cliko uses front, side and top views and Architecto uses perspective views. The challenges get increasingly difficult.


G02 Activities
 Translations Desmos Activity from Andrew Stadel  Students use an online Desmos activity to describe and execute translations in words and coordinate notation. They also perform error analysis, critiquing a classmate's mistake, and then fixing it.
 TranStar from MangaHigh  Students use transformation (reflections, rotations, dilations, translations) to navigate their ship across space (a Cartesian grid) in this online game.
