Lesson  (...)
Lesson: Students discover algorithms as they sort shapes into Venn diagrams. Then students compare the efficiency of their algorithms using box plots.

Activity  (...)
Activity: Build your own polygon and transform it in the Cartesian coordinate system. Experiment with reflections across any line, revolving around any line (which yields a 3-D image), rotations about any point, and translations in any direction.

Activity: Explore the world of translations, reflections, and rotations in the Cartesian coordinate system by transforming squares, triangles and parallelograms. Parameters: Shape, x or y translation, x or y reflection, angle of rotation.
