In this animated Math Shorts video from the Utah Education Network, learn about reflection, one type of movement for geometric shapes. The animation relates the geometric meaning of reflection to its more common understanding—a mirror image—and then displays geometric shapes on a coordinate plane reflecting through the x-axis and y-axis. In the accompanying classroom activity, students design a geometric figure in one quadrant and then reflect it into at least one other quadrant. They earn points by designing more complicated shapes or reflecting a shape into more quadrants. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
