## What does the term rigid transformation mean?

Rigid just means **that the whole shape goes through the same transformation**, so with rotations, reflections, and translations, the shape should not change at all, just in a different place or orientation.

## What is another type of transformation?

The four main types of transformations are **translations, reflections, rotations, and scaling**.

## What is a rigid transformation for kids?

Rigid Transformations – A transformation that does not alter the size or shape of a figure; **rotations, reflections, translations** are all rigid transformations.

## What are rigid transformations?

The rigid transformations include **rotations, translations, reflections, or their combination**. … Any object will keep the same shape and size after a proper rigid transformation. All rigid transformations are examples of affine transformations.

## What is a sequence of rigid transformations?

Any sequence of rigid motions is called a rigid transformation. A rigid transformation is a **transformation that doesn’t change measurements on any figure**. With a rigid transformation, figures like polygons have corresponding sides of the same length and corresponding angles of the same measure.

## Which of the following is not a rigid transformation?

Types of transformations Translation, reflection, and rotation are all rigid transformations, while **dilation** is a non-rigid transformation.

## Is dilation a rigid transformation?

A dilation is a similarity transformation that changes the size but not the shape of a figure. Dilations **are not rigid transformations** because, while they preserve angles, they do not preserve lengths.
