When you look in the mirror, you see your reflection. In math, you can create mirror images of figures by reflecting them over a given line. This tutorial introduces you to reflections and shows you some examples of reflections. Take a look!

Just about everything in math has a name! Did you know that the line you reflect a figure over has a special name? It's called the line of reflection! Watch this tutorial and learn about the line of reflection.

Just about everything in math has a name! Did you know that when you're dealing with transformations, the new figure you get is called an image? Check out this tutorial and learn about this math term!
