Access Point #: MAFS.912.G-CO.1.AP.4aArchived Access Point

Using previous comparisons and descriptions of transformations, develop and understand the meaning of rotations, reflections, and translations based on angles, circles, perpendicular lines, parallel lines, and line segments.

Essential Understandings


  • Match a model to the term rotations, reflections and translations.
  • Use manipulatives or geometry software to demonstrate rotation, reflections and translations.
  • Make a list of the characteristics observed in the demonstration of each term.
  • Use the list of characteristics to develop a definition for rotations, reflections and translations.
General Information
Number: MAFS.912.G-CO.1.AP.4a
Category: Access Points
Date Adopted or Revised: 07/14
Cluster: Experiment with transformations in the plane. (Geometry - Supporting Cluster)

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
