TLF ID M021072
This sequence of three lessons explores transformation and symmetry by engaging students in the design of friezes. Students are introduced to simple friezes, how reflections, rotations and translations are combined to create design elements, explore real frieze examples from furnishings in Parliament House and tyres, then invited to design their own frieze. Each lesson is outlined in detail including curriculum links, vocabulary, materials needed, supporting PowerPoint presentations, discussion points and student resources. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Maths by Inquiry program.
