Keywords & Theorems
 Line of Symmetry
 A line that passes through a figure such that it splits the figure into two congruent halves.
 Line Symmetry
 When a figure has one or more lines of symmetry.
 Rotational Symmetry

When a figure can be rotated (less that
360∘ ) and it looks the same way it did before the rotation.
 Center of Rotation
 The point at which the figure is rotated around such that the rotational symmetry holds. Typically, the center of rotation is the center of the figure.
 angle of rotation
 The angle of rotation, tells us how many degrees we can rotate a figure so that it still looks the same.
 Transformation
 An operation that moves, flips, or changes a figure to create a new figure.
 Rigid Transformation
 A transformation that preserves size and shape.
 Translation
 A transformation that moves every point in a figure the same distance in the same direction.
 Vector
 A quantity that has direction and size.
 Reflection
 A transformation that turns a figure into its mirror image by flipping it over a line.
 Line of Reflection
 The line that a figure is reflected over.

Reflection over the
y− axis 
If
(x,y) is reflected over they− axis, then the image is(−x,y) .

Reflection over the
x− axis 
If
(x,y) is reflected over thex− axis, then the image is(x,−y) .

Reflection over
x=a 
If
(x,y) is reflected over the vertical linex=a , then the image is(2a−x,y) .

Reflection over
y=b 
If
(x,y) is reflected over the horizontal liney=b , then the image is(x,2b−y) .

Reflection over
y=x 
If
(x,y) is reflected over the liney=x , then the image is(y,x) .

Reflection over
y=−x 
If
(x,y) is reflected over the liney=−x , then the image is(−y,−x) .
 Rotation
 A transformation by which a figure is turned around a fixed point to create an image.
 Center of Rotation
 The fixed point that a figure is rotated around.

Rotation of
180∘ 
If
(x,y) is rotated180∘ around the origin, then the image will be(−x,−y) .

Rotation of
90∘ 
If
(x,y) is rotated90∘ around the origin, then the image will be(−y,x) .

Rotation of
270∘ 
If
(x,y) is rotated270∘ around the origin, then the image will be(y,−x) .
 Composition (of transformations)
 To perform more than one rigid transformation on a figure.
 Glide Reflection
 A composition of a reflection and a translation. The translation is in a direction parallel to the line of reflection.
 Reflections over Parallel Lines Theorem

If you compose two reflections over parallel lines that are
h units apart, it is the same as a single translation of2h units.
 Reflection over the Axes Theorem

If you compose two reflections over each axis, then the final image is a rotation of
180∘ of the original.
 Reflection over Intersecting Lines Theorem

If you compose two reflections over lines that intersect at
x∘ , then the resulting image is a rotation of2x∘ , where the center of rotation is the point of intersection.
 Tessellation
 A tiling over a plane with one or more figures such that the figures fill the plane with no overlaps and no gaps.
