### Reflections: Graphs and Rules

### Review

- Transformation
- A transformation is an operation that moves, ____, or changes a shape to create a new shape.

- Reflection
- A reflection is an example of a transformation that flips _____ of a shape over the same line.
- Line of Reflection
- The line of reflection is the line that a shape _____ (flips) across when undergoing a reflection.

Each point on the preimage will be the * same distance* from the line of reflection as it's corresponding point in the image.

3) Draw a triangle with vertices at points (-2, 3), (-3,1) and (1,1). Then reflect the triangle across the line

4) The purple pentagon is reflected across the

### Notation/Rules

We can generalize reflections by using the following template:

Reflection notation helps us describe the movement of a figure more generally, generalizing the coordinates from (2,3) for example, to (x,y).

1) Describe the following reflection using reflection notation:

Solution:

2) Reflect Image A in the diagram below:

a) Across the

b) Across the

c) Across the line

Write notation for each to indicate the type of reflection.

Solution:

a) Reflection across the

b) Reflection across the

c) Reflection across the
