And, with this, it is ok to stretch outside your comfort zone.

  • Two-Axis Rotations  -  In this workshop, Students learn about two-axis rotations with a specific emphasis on how to rotate objects both physically and mentally about two axes. A two-axis rotation is a rotation of an object about a combination of x, y or z-axes, as opposed to a single-axis rotation, which is about a single x, y or z-axis. This workshop follows the same format as that of the one-axis rotation workshop. Students practice drawing two-axis rotations through an exercise using cube blocks to create shapes, and then drawing on isometric paper the shapes from various x-, y- and z-axis rotation perspectives. Then they individually apply the same rotation concepts in a workbook exercise. They also pair up with a partner to test their exclusively mental spatial visualization abilities at a station with no rotating built objects. Lastly, students further solidify two-axis rotation concepts via computer software exercises.

  • Reflection Symmetry -  In this workshop, students explore the spatial visualization techniques of reflection and symmetry. This workshop serves as an add-on to the (previous) Inclined Planes and Curved Surfaces Workshop with the goal to advance students’ learned spatial visualization skills. It begins with an explanation of both reflection and symmetry. Then students explore reflections by building objects from cube blocks, defining a reflection plane, and drawing the object before and after a reflection. Then they individually practice reflection and symmetry workbook problems. They also have the opportunity to ask the instructor questions in an open-ended help station called “Meet the Expert.”

  • Write a Rule - Students learn a new spatial visualization test-taking technique called “write a rule” and apply it, along with their pre-requisite knowledge gained during the previous workshops/lessons in this series (not required, but beneficial), to practice answering test problems. The write a rule technique is a process in which the rotation of one object is simply defined in order to determine the position of a second object after the same rotation. It is a method used to simplify spatial visualization problem solving and has been proven to be effective for many students. Students practice the technique on the first eight rotating cube problems of the provided practice test. Then they apply it to workbook problems. After conducting this lesson/workshop, the instructor may want to administer a spatial visualization test such as the Purdue Spatial Visualization Test: Rotations (PSVT:R) to measure student knowledge and skills. In this workshop, students explore the spatial visualization techniques of reflection and symmetry. This workshop serves as an add-on to the (previous) Inclined Planes and Curved Surfaces Workshop with the goal to advance students’ learned spatial visualization skills. It begins with an explanation of both reflection and symmetry. Then students explore reflections by building objects from cube blocks, defining a reflection plane, and drawing the object before and after a reflection.
