License Plate Mathematics: Palindromes, Graphing, & Transformations
Using license plates as a context, we will analyze patterns. I will share a technique for graphing, and you will design your own license plates with given parameters. Our graphs will offer entry into transformational geometry, and a mapping from letters to numbers allows us to experience early algebra in context.
