The Rotation Exploration is a task designed for geometry students learning about rotations. Students are given a conjecture about rotations claiming that the only point that stays stationary is the center of rotation. To aid in the development of an argument agreeing or disagreeing with the conjecture, students are to define vocab words, gather data, form a hypothesis, and construct an argument. Examples are given for students to gather data from and sentence starters and a checklist are provided to help with the development of a strong mathematical argument.
