Geometry II: Belugas Blow Up the Coordinate Plane

Geometry II: Belugas Blow Up the Coordinate Plane


A beluga can swim backwards, nod its head in all directions, and it generally lives in a pod (a small group of belugas). In these pods, belugas practice nodding, swimming backwards, transforming on the coordinate plane, and measuring angles all at the same time. 


  • Students transform a given shape to a target shape by dilating, rotating, translating, or reflecting. 
  • Students identify angle measures using complementary, supplementary, and vertical angle relationships. 
  • Students locate points expressed as fractions and decimals to the hundredths place by scaling the Cartesian coordinate plane. 
  • Recommended for: Ages 11+ / Grades 6-7
  • Teacher: Carolina Velez
