Angle

Angle

A geometric figure formed by two rays that connect at a single point or vertex.Line of Symmetry

Line of Symmetry

A line of symmetry is a line that can be drawn to divide a figure into equal halves.Reflection

Reflection

A reflection is a transformation that flips a figure on the coordinate plane across a given line without changing the shape or size of the figure.Reflections

Reflections

Reflections are transformations that result in a "mirror image" of a parent function. They are caused by differing signs between parent and child functions.Rotation

Rotation

A rotation is a transformation that turns a figure on the coordinate plane a certain number of degrees about a given point without changing the shape or size of the figure.Transformation

Transformation

A transformation moves a figure in some way on the coordinate plane.Transformations

Transformations

Transformations are used to change the graph of a parent function into the graph of a more complex function.Rigid Transformation

Rigid Transformation

A rigid transformation is a transformation that preserves distance and angles, it does not change the size or shape of the figure.### Image Attributions
