Transformations and Technology: What Path to Follow?

This article describes a technology-based approach for dealing with a misconception that some students hold concerning the equivalency of geometric transformations. The article looks at students studying transformations as mathematical entities and not just as procedures to apply to shapes. Students use technology-based activities to help rectify commonly held misconceptions. This resource would be a good supplement for sections II and IV.
