LESSON: Transformations

Objectives/Vocab

Objectives

  • Identify transformations in the coordinate plane as translations (slides), reflections (flips) and rotations (turns).
  • Graph paired transformations of figures given coordinates of vertices.
  • Describe transformations as x- and y-coordinate changes.
  • Identify equivalent transformations with different coordinate changes.

Vocabulary

Transformation
when a figure is moved in some way on the coordinate plane, the way that the figure is moved is called a transformation.
Translation
a slide, this when a figure slides on the coordinate plane from one place to the next
Reflection
the flip of a figure. Figures can be reflected over the x axis or over the y axis
Rotation
a turn. A figure can be turned in various directions on the coordinate plane.
Equivalent
another name for equal
