Transformations and Technology: What Path to Follow?

Brad Glass 

March 2004, Volume 9, Issue 7, Page 392

Abstract:
A technology-based approach for dealing with a misconception that some students hold concerning the equivalency of geometric transformations. Students can begin to conceptualize transformations in terms of the relationship between preimage and image figures rather than focus on the motion of a figure. Teachers will learn how to use technology to implement this activity in the mathematics classroom.
