Mindful Transformations, More Than Meets The Eye

Kenya Lawrence, Math, Harding University High

Curriculum Unit (PDF)


Students will participate in mindful practices and develop a growth mindset through activities embedded in math lessons aligned to the North Carolina Math 2 standards. Students will answer questions about the properties of rigid and non-rigid transformations, justify whether two figures are congruent or similar, the connection between functions and transformations and the real-life relevance of transformations. Transformations is the first unit in NC Math 2. This unit should help teachers to create a routine to support students in developing a mindful practice and growth mindset in a project-based learning experience. The summative assignment for the curriculum unit requires students to create original journal entries based on their reflections through the learning process.
