Reflection and Symmetry: Da Vinci's Mirror Writing |
In this module explore reflection and symmetry in the context of Leonardo Da Vinci's mirror writing. Many of Da Vinci's handwritten notes were written in reverse script that could only be read correctly in a mirror. This provides an opportunity to explore geometric reflections, but also the symmetric properties of certain letters of the alphabet. The module begins by looking at reflections and axes of reflection. Through this exploration students come to recognize that some letters, in spite of a reflection, are unchanged. This creates an opportunity to explore vertical and horizontal line symmetry. |

Closed Captioned Video: Geometry Applications: Transformations |
In this program we look at applications of transformations. We do this in the context of three real-world applications. In the first, we look at translations and rotations in the context of roller coaster rides. In the second example we look at translations in three-dimensional space in the context of cargo ships. In the third example, we look at the design of observatories to look at rotations, reflections, and symmetry.

Cargo ships transport tons of merchandise from one country to another and accounts for most of the global economy. Loading and unloading these ships requires a great deal of organization and provides an ideal example of three-dimensional translations.

The Gemini telescope in Hawaii is an example of architecture that moves. All observatories rotate in order to follow objects in the sky. This also provides an opportunity to explore rotations, reflections, and symmetry.
