## Directions.

Use the applet to learn how coordinates are affected when you rotate around the ORIGIN (Do NOT move Point F for this activity. Do NOT go to a different Problem other than #1)
Use the Google Form (in Google Classroom) to answer the questions. Be sure to submit when you are done.

## What to Notice...

First, move the

**slider**for the**Angle of Rotation**. When you do this, the shape is being rotated around**Point F**in a**counterclockwise**direction. We could also do a**clockwise**rotation (but not with this particular app) .- Rotating a shape 90 degrees counterclockwise would be the SAME as rotating it 270 degrees clockwise.
- Rotating a shape 180 degrees counterclockwise would be the SAME as rotating it 180 degrees clockwise.
- Rotating a shape 270 degrees counterclockwise would be the SAME as rotating it 90 degrees clockwise.
