Note from the author:
A complete formative lesson with embedded slideshow, mini lecture screencasts, checks for understanding, practice items, mixed review, and reflection. I create these assignments to supplement each lesson of Pearson's Common Core Edition Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry courses. See also mathquest.net and twitter.com/mathquestEDU.

Problem 1 Got It? Reasoning:LMN has vertices L(-4, 2), M(-3, -3), and N(-1, 1). Suppose the triangle is translated 4 units right and 2 unit up and then dilated by a scale factor of 0.5 with center of dilation at the origin. Sketch the △LMN in black and the resulting image of the composition of transformations in blue. Include all relevant graph detail.
