## What is the transformation that turns an object?

Rotation is a rigid transformation in which an object is turned through some angle (the angle of rotation) about a point (in the case of a two-dimensional object) or axis of rotation (in the case of a three-dimensional object).

## What are the 4 basic transformation?

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

## What are the 5 transformations?

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

## What is a slide transformation?

A translation (or “slide”) is one type of transformation. In a translation, each point in a figure moves the same distance in the same direction. Example: If each point in a square moves 5 units to the right and 8 units down, then that is a translation!

## How do you describe a transformation?

A transformation is a way of changing the size or position of a shape. Every point in the shape is translated the same distance in the same direction.

## What is transformation with example?

Transformation is the process of changing. An example of a transformation is a caterpillar turning into a butterfly.

## How do you identify transformations?

The function translation / transformation rules:

1. f (x) + b shifts the function b units upward.
2. f (x) – b shifts the function b units downward.
3. f (x + b) shifts the function b units to the left.
4. f (x – b) shifts the function b units to the right.
5. –f (x) reflects the function in the x-axis (that is, upside-down).

## What does the word transformations mean?

: the act or process of changing completely : a complete change. transformation. noun.
