Vocabulary Language: English ▼ English Angle AngleA geometric figure formed by two rays that connect at a single point or vertex. Line of Symmetry Line of SymmetryA line of symmetry is a line that can be drawn to divide a figure into equal halves. Reflection ReflectionA 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 ReflectionsReflections are transformations that result in a "mirror image" of a parent function. They are caused by differing signs between parent and child functions. Rotation RotationA 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 TransformationA transformation moves a figure in some way on the coordinate plane. Transformations TransformationsTransformations are used to change the graph of a parent function into the graph of a more complex function. Rigid Transformation Rigid TransformationA rigid transformation is a transformation that preserves distance and angles, it does not change the size or shape of the figure.
