Practice with degrees of rotation (angles) to replicate shapes using Shape Rotate. Start the activity to obtain a pattern to reproduce. Select the number of degrees rotation for each piece and the number of times it appears in the shape. Press shape rotate to produce your shape and see if it matches. If incorrect, directions tell what needs correction such as more degrees needed. If correct, move on to a new pattern. Be sure your Flash version is up to date for this one.

tag(s): angles (63), rotation (12)

In the Classroom

Use Shape Rotate on your interactive whiteboard (or projector) to review and practice degrees and rotation of angles. Discuss different strategies for choosing degrees of rotation within a pattern. Use this site as a model and have students create their own pattern and rotations for other students to solve.

Find many useful Common Core resources located at the Kansas Association Teachers of Mathematics (KATM) website. Specifically, find and print Common Core flip books created by the association. Available for all grades K-12, the flip books intend to help teachers understand standards in terms of what students should know or do. Also check out the Summer Academy files that link to several documents such as a Common Core treasure hunt and grade level transition documents to help make the move to Common Core standards. The main page offers links to more information about the Kansas Common Core, interactive math sites, and links to more sites about Common Core.

tag(s): commoncore (45), professional development (37)

In the Classroom

If you are implementing Common Core standards in your classroom, the flip books are an excellent tool containing examples of Common Core strategies, misconceptions, and much more. Print the flip book for your grade level on heavy paper and use throughout the year as a guide for math instruction. Copy individual pages as desired to send home to parents to explain instruction and demonstrate examples for understanding. Use the Summer Academy files during staff development opportunities to practice and understand Common Core concepts.

Create magical looking artwork as you click and drag with this beautiful site. Personalize the images using the color and format links at the bottom of the screen. Choose from vertical or four-way symmetry or symmetry off. Include new age music to add to the magical effects or turn music off with a simple click. Share your creations through links to Twitter, Facebook, email, or copy the link. Althought there is no option to print or save a finished design, you could take a screenshot (Shift+ Command +4 on a mac or Prtscrn key on Windows) and save or paste it into a document to write about or save.

In the Classroom

Use this site to explore symmetry with your students on your interactive whiteboard or projector. Watch what happens when you choose from the different available options. Discuss what emotions certain colors can induce. Have students create their own artwork then print and post to a class bulletin board display (or share on your class website or blog). Challenge students to identify the type or types of symmetry shown in each design. Use this site in both art and math class while learning about symmetry. Have students take screenshots and write about their creations.
