## Which transformation does not change the orientation?

Rotation and translation preserve orientation, as objects’ pieces stay in the same order. **Reflection** does not preserve orientation.

## Does a translation change orientation?

A translation is when a geometric figure slides up, down, left or right on the coordinate plane. The figure moves its location, but **doesn’t change its orientation**. It also doesn’t change its size or shape. When you perform translations, you slide a figure left or right, up or down.

## What are the 5 transformations?

These lessons help GCSE/IGCSE Maths students learn about different types of Transformation: Translation, Reflection, Rotation and Enlargement.

## How do you change the orientation of vertices?

**A reflection** will change the orientation of the vertices of the figure. 6. The graph below SNOWs a rotation.

## What is a sequence of transformation?

**When two or more transformations are combined to form a new transformation**, the result is called a sequence of transformations, or a composition of transformations. Remember, that in a composition, one transformation produces an image upon which the other transformation is then performed.
