Transformation Lab Activity
- Kayla Golden
Part 1: Constructing the Figure
a. What figure did you construct?
b) Does this figure have symmetry? How do you know?
Part 2: Reflections
a. How did reflecting figure ABCD change the original figure? (Select ALL that apply).
b. Compare and contrast the pre-image to the image. What do you notice?
6) What do you notice about all of the line segments? Record your observations.
Part 3: Translations
a. What is the relationship between the vector and the two figures?
b. Using the "Move" (1st button on left), drag the point H around. What happens to the figure?
c. What happens when point H is dragged on top of point G?
Part 4: Rotations
a. Using the "angle 1" slider, drag the point back and forth. What happens to the original figure?
b. Rotate the object to 90˚, list the coordinates of A', B', C', and D' below.
c. Rotate the object to 180˚, list the coordinates of A', B', C', and D' below.
d. Rotate the object to 270˚, list the coordinates of A', B', C', and D' below.
e. Using the slider, will the two figures ever be in the same spot? Why or why not?
