Explore congruence, transformations, and composition of transformations through examples involving landscape architecture in this video from MPT. In the accompanying classroom activity, students find examples of translations, rotations, reflections, and their composition in the classroom or on school grounds. They wrap up by considering whether any two congruent objects can be related by a sequence of transformations. To get the most from the lesson, students should be familiar with rotations, reflections, and translations. For a longer self-paced student tutorial using this media, see "Congruency and Transformations in Landscape Architecture" on Thinkport from Maryland Public Television.
