Students will work for a company that specializes in creating company logos. The students will use their knowledge of transformational geometry to create a unique design for each company. Their design must consist of at least two types of transformations: reflections, translations or rotations. They will be given extra points if they can create their design using tessellations.
Throughout this project, students will work cooperatively in pairs. They will complete two worksheets and their final project. Assessment of student understanding will be based on the completion of the worksheets and final project.
