# What type of transformation changes the orientation?

Contents

## 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.
