Transcript of Transformations in Geometry

What does it mean to have a transformation in mathematics? Transformations What do you think of when you hear the word transformation? Chrysalis Evolution of Man Transformers Transformation is when you move all the points of a geometric figure according to certain rules and create an image of the original figure. When the image is congruent to the original figure it is called a rigid transformation or isometry. Translation is the easiest isometry. To make a translation you take all the points and move them the same distance along parallel paths to form its image. A translation has a specific direction and can be shown by a translation vector. Translation is the easiest isometry. To make a translation you take all the points and move them the same distance along parallel paths to form its image. A translation has a specific direction and can be shown by a translation vector. Translation Vector Rotation is another type of isometry. A rotation is when you turn or rotate a figure the same number of degrees about a fixed center point. The direction is said to be either clockwise or counterclockwise and if no direction is given than it should be assumed to be turning counterclockwise. Rotation is another type of isometry. A rotation is when you turn or rotate a figure the same number of degrees about a fixed center point. The direction is said to be either clockwise or counterclockwise and if no direction is given than it should be assumed to be turning counterclockwise. Reflection is another type isometry. Reflection creates a mirror image of the original figure along the line of reflection. Get out a half sheet of paper and head it correctly for the exit slip. Your name
