We all know about the transformations of Batman and Superman! But how do these relate to transformations in mathematics? Read on to find out!
In geometry, transformations refer to the movement of a shape in the coordinate plane.
There are 4 important transformations you need to know:
- Rotation (Turn)
- Translation (Slide)
- Reflection (Flip)
After any of those transformations (turn, flip or slide), the shape still has the same size, area, angles and line lengths.
4. Resizing (Dilation, enlargement) : The shape becomes bigger or smaller by a specific scale.
