Unit 1: 8th Grade Math

Well hello there! :) Did you think I was gone forever? My last post was August 11th and on August 12th we started staff development. It's been a whirlwind ever since! I had wonderful intentions about posting last weekend on Labor Day, but the Mr. got sick :(
Here are my pages so far this year for 8th grade math. We've started with transformations...

On most days students did some sort of investigation with their teams, then we filled out the left side, then they practiced on the right side getting help from me and their teammates as needed.
How have you taught transformations so far this year? I'd love to see and hear some ideas!!

**UPDATE** Files have been enabled again! Enjoy!!

  2. I'm actually teaching transformations this upcoming week. I was messing around on Pinterest and I scored! Yay, me! Thank you for these! I bought something similar on TPT b ut it takes up too many pages. We have strict copy limits!

  3. How did you attach the transparency to the paper on the rotations page? I love these! I'm actually previewing this content after our state testing in 7th grade to give them a "head start" in 8th grade!

  6. I am using this next week when I do transformations! I had a couple of questions though, do you have them tape or glue their stuff onto the paper and then go through and teach the lesson or do they tape/glue as you go?

    What kind of practice/activity did you do after you taught the lessons? I'm wanting to do a fun thing with this after we get done learning it.

    My email is skfoster@auburnschools.org if you would like to email me or I always check back so I could see your comment at any time.

    Thanks so much! I love your blog

  10. These are amazing! Just one question...on the Dilations pages the middle example of the second part, what did you use this one for? Triangle ABC in quadrant IV, just trying to get an idea of what dilation to use - enlargement or reduction. Thanks :)

  14. Hello. I found your resources extremely helpful, too. Today, I came back to download the dilations notes, and none of the copies are available any longer. Will you be making them available again? Thanks.

  15. I also was searching for your resources that seemed to have moved within the last few days. I have enjoyed your site for quite awhile. Is there anyway that you could send me the resources or re-post?
