Content description
Define congruence of plane shapes using transformations and use transformations of congruent shapes to produce regular patterns in the plane including tessellations with and without the use of digital technology
Elaborations
  1. understanding the properties that determine congruence of triangles and recognising which transformations create congruent figures
  2. establishing that two figures are congruent if one shape lies exactly on top of the other after one or more transformations (translation, reflection, rotation), and recognising that the matching sides and the matching angles are equal
  3. exploring tiling patterns in art and design
