GEOMETRIC PATTERN VIDEO INSTRUCTION
“Geometric Patterns” is mathematics/geometry game that deepens the understanding of different geometric transformations.
Geometric transformations: Central symmetry; Reflection; Rotation; Translation; Dilation
Teams are given a picture card; they have to recognize and explain the depicted geometric transformation they see. They must recreate these transformations by using the symbol cards they have. The first team who does that scores victory points. There are Simple and Advanced gameplay options. In the Simple game, teams should find only one geometric transformation on picture card and form their transformation pattern using 2 small symbol cards. In Advanced level, teams should find all the possible geometric transformations on a picture card and form their transformation pattern.
Students learn to discern and recognize geometric transformations as well as use them to create different geometric patterns.
