Weekly Standards:
Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations: [8-G1]
 
Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations; given two congruent figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the congruence between them. [8-G2]
 
Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates. [8-G3]

Weekly Standards: 
***Apply and extend previous understandings of addition and subtraction to add and subtract rational numbers; represent addition and subtraction on a horizontal or vertical number line diagram. [7-NS1]
***Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division and of fractions to multiply and divide rational numbers. [7-NS2]
***Draw polygons in the coordinate plane given coordinates for the vertices; use coordinates to find the length of a side joining points with the same first coordinate or the same second coordinate. Apply these techniques in the context of solving real-world and mathematical problems. [6-G3]
