This is where external links are collected. For example, youtube videos or step by step tutorials on the link and description.
Here is an example of a student assignment.
What does symmetry look like?
What types of symmetry are there?
What are transformations?
1) Go to this link
https://minecraftbuildinginc.com/how-to-create-your-own-minecraft-pixel-art-template/ and create a pixel art presentation using one or a combination of the following types of symmetry horizontal, vertical, oblique, or rotational.
2) You will need to replicate your 2D pixel art grid in Minecraft in 3D.
Using Sway or Power Point Create a presentation based on the following:
Minecraft Pixel Art Grid - 1 2 3 4 5 (print out or save screen shot)
Show Evidence of Symmetry - 1 2 3 4 5 (horizontal, vertical, oblique, or rotational)
Create Pixel Art in Minecraft - 1 2 3 4 5
Show Symmetry, Order of Rotation, and Angle of Rotation - 1 2 3 4 5 (use signs)
