Lesson

Are you ready?

Let try this problem to review transformations of shapes. 

Choose the picture that shows a translation.

Learn

This video starts by recapping translations, reflections, and rotations. It then explores how to identify a shape that has undergone multiple transformations.

Apply

What two transformations would be needed to get from Flag $A$A to Flag $B$B?

  1. Rotation and translation

    A

    Two translations

    B

    Two reflections

    C

    Reflection and translation

    D

    Rotation and translation

    A

    Two translations

    B

    Two reflections

    C

    Reflection and translation

    D

 

Remember!

A shape or object many be transformed more than once. Think about whether the position or orientation of the shape has changed to help work out whether it has been translated, reflected, rotated, or enlarged.
