Subject: Mathematics
Title: Symmetries II     
Description: In this unit of four lessons, from Illuminations, students use Java applets to investigate reflection, mirror, or bilateral symmetry. They learn about the mathematical properties of mirror symmetry and have a chance to create designs with mirror symmetry.

Subject: Mathematics
Title: Describing Reflections     
Description: In this lesson, one of a multi-part unit from Illuminations, students learn how reflections work and what happens when two or more reflections are applied one after the other. They use interactive Java applets to examine the reflection of a point and how to describe reflections.

Subject: Mathematics
Title: Understanding Congruence, Similarity, and Symmetry Using Transformations and Interactive Figures: Visualizing Transformations     
Description: The interactive figures in this four-part example from Illuminations allow a user to manipulate a shape and observe its behavior under a particular transformation or composition of transformations. e-Math Investigations are selected e-examples from the electronic version of the Principles and Standards of School Mathematics (PSSM). The e-examples are part of the electronic version of the PSSM document. Given their interactive nature and focused discussion tied to the PSSM document, the e-examples are natural companions to the i-Math investigations.

Subject: Mathematics
Title: Understanding Congruence, Similarity, and Symmetry Using Transformations and Interactive Figures: Composing Transformations     
Description: This is part four of a four-part e-example from Illuminations that features interactive figures that allow a user to manipulate a shape and observe its behavior under a particular transformation or composition of transformations. In this part, Composing Transformations, the users are challenged to compose equivalent transformations in two different ways. e-Math Investigations are selected e-examples from the electronic version of the Principles and Standards for School Mathematics (PSSM). Given their interactive nature and focused discussion tied to the PSSM document, the e-examples are natural companions to the i-Math Investigations.
