# Transformations Worksheets

What are Geometric Transformations? The geometric transformation includes taking a preimage and molding or transforming it to obtain an image. Broadly, there are two types of geometric transformations: The non-rigid transformation that alters the size of the preimage while keeping the shape intact. The rigid transformation doesn't alter the size or shape of the preimage. Types of Transformation - Rigid and non-rigid transformations are further divided into different categories. Rotation, translation, and reflection fall in the rigid transformation, and dilation fall in the non-rigid category. Below we have briefly discussed each sub-category. Translation - It is a type of transformation that slides or moves across the plane or through space. In translation, all points of a figure move or slide in the same direction and cover the same distance. Rotation - As the name implies, rotation moves the figure about a line or point. It basically means to spin or turn the figure at a point. The point of turning or spinning is known as the center of rotation. This center can lie outside the figure or be present on the figure. Reflection - Reflection is a transformation that involves flipping the shape across the line to create a mirror image, in the mirror image, the measures of lines and angles are preserved. Dilation - Dilation is the transformation that involves expanding or contracting the shape without disturbing its orientation or shape.

• ### Basic Lesson

Guides students through the concept of transformations. Label the figure with the correct term. Translation (slide), Rotation (turn), Reflection (flip).

• ### Intermediate Lesson

Demonstrates how to identify a translation, rotation, or reflection.

• ### Independent Practice 1

Students determine is the transformation taking place is a translation, rotation, or reflection.

• ### Independent Practice 2

Students determine the type of transformation in 20 assorted problems. The answers can be found below.

• ### Homework Worksheet

Students are provided with 12 problems to review transformations.

• ### Skill Quiz

This tests the students ability to understand transformations.

Answers for the homework and quiz.

• ### Answer Key Part 2

Answers for lessons and both practice sheets.

• ### Basic Lesson

Demonstrates translations, rotations, and reflections with great detail. Draw the triangle after the transformations. A translation is a slide where the figure is moved either horizontally or vertically or both. A rotation is a turn around a point. A reflection is a flip of the figure over a line. The transformed figure is the mirror image of the original.

• ### Independent Practice 1

6 draw the triangle after the transformation problems. The answers can be found below. Draw the triangles after the transformations.

• ### Independent Practice 2

6 draw the triangle after the transformation problems.

• ### Homework Worksheet

Great practice for after school. Examples are provided.

• ### Skill Quiz

A mixture of transformation problems. A math scoring matrix is included.

Answers for the homework and quiz.

• ### Answer Key Part 2

Answers for lessons and both practice sheets.

• ### Basic Lesson

Guides students through identifying translations from a variety of choices. A translation moves an object without changing its size or shape and without turning it or flipping it. The translation of an object is called its image.

• ### Intermediate Lesson

Demonstrates how to describe and apply translations. Describe the translation as horizontal of Vertical for the figures above. The object is flipped horizontally (left to right).

• ### Independent Practice 1

A really great activity for allowing students to reinforce the concept of Working with Translations.

• ### Independent Practice 2

Students Work with Translations in assorted problems. The answers can be found below.

• ### Independent Practice 3

An in-depth review of Working with Translations are found on this worksheet .

#### Geometry Poem and Joke

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Greens' functions are boring
And so are Fourier transforms.
