## Presentation Transcript

1. Learn to recognize, describe, and show transformations. Course 2 8-10 Translations, Reflections, and Rotations

2. Vocabulary transformation image translation reflection line of reflection rotation Insert Lesson Title Here Course 2 8-10 Translations, Reflections, and Rotations

3. A translation "slides" an object a fixed distance in a given direction. The original object and its translation have the s ame shape and size , and they face in the same direction . The word "translate" in Latin means "carried across".

4. Think of polygon ABCDE as sliding two inches to the right and one inch down. Its new position is labeled A'B'C'D'E'. A translation moves an object without changing its size or shape and without turning it or flipping it.

5. Remember: Translations are SLIDES!!! Translations are SLIDES!!!

6. A reflection can be seen in water, in a mirror, in glass, or in a shiny surface. An object and its reflection have the same shape and size , but the figures face in opposite directions . In a mirror, for example, right and left are switched.

7. The line (where a mirror may be placed) is called the line of reflection . The distance from a point to the line of reflection is the same as the distance from the point's image to the line of reflection. A reflection can be thought of as a "flipping" of an object over the line of reflection. Remember: Reflections are FLIPS!!!

8. A rotation is a transformation that turns a figure about a fixed point called the center of rotation. An object and its rotation are the same shape and size , but the figures may be turned in different directions.

9. Remember: Rotations are TURNS!!! This rotation is 90 degrees counterclo ckwise.

10. Identify each type of transformation. Additional Example 1: Identifying Types of Transformations The figure flips across the y-axis. A. B. It is a translation. Course 2 8-10 Translations, Reflections, and Rotations It is a reflection. The figure slides along a straight line.

11. Insert Lesson Title Here Course 2 8-10 Translations, Reflections, and Rotations The point that a figure rotates around may be on the figure or away from the figure. Helpful Hint
