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 nonrigid 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 nonrigid transformations are further divided into different categories. Rotation, translation, and reflection fall in the rigid transformation, and dilation fall in the nonrigid category. Below we have briefly discussed each subcategory. 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

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.

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.
