Learn about reflections through examples from landscape architecture in this video from MPT. In the accompanying classroom activity, students identify reflection lines in photographs of designed landscapes. Next, they draw a triangle and graph its reflections over the x-axis and y-axis. They then consider changes in coordinates that result from these reflections. To get the most from the lesson, students should be comfortable graphing in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane. For a longer self-paced student tutorial using this media, see "Transformations in Landscaping" on Thinkport from Maryland Public Television.
