Can a transformation change the shape?
A transformation changes the size, shape, or position of a figure and creates a new figure. A geometry transformation is either rigid or non-rigid; another word for a rigid transformation is “isometry”. An isometry, such as a rotation, translation, or reflection, does not change the size or shape of the figure.
What are the 3 basic transformations that can be done to a shape?
There are three basic rigid transformations: reflections, rotations, and translations. Reflections, like the name suggests, reflect the shape across a line which is given. Rotations rotate a shape around a center point which is given, and translations slide or move a shape from one place to another.
How do you transform a shape?
There are different kinds of transformation.
- Rotation is when the shape is turned around a point.
- Reflection is when a shape is reflected in a mirror line.
- Translation is when a shape is moved a certain distance from its original position.
What are the 5 transformations?
