Tool: Transformations - Composition

Description: With this virtual manipulative you can create objects with pattern block pieces and explore the effect of two transformations (Translations, Reflections, or Rotations) in any order. The product of two such transformations is another transformation of the plane but the combined effect may be quite different from the effect of any single transformation.

Comment:This is an excellent tool for middle level math classes which allows the students the option of creating an object, locating it on a grid and experimenting with transformations to either create or duplicate a dsimilar object.
