When you graph a composition of two transformations, you have to be very careful to perform all the steps in the right order! Watch this tutorial to see how to graph a glide reflection.
Want to figure out whether two figures are congruent? There's a mathematically precise way to do this! Watch this tutorial on congruence transformations to learn more.
How do you know if one figure is similar to another? If you can find a similarity transformation that maps one figure to the other, then the figures are similar! Learn more about spotting similarity transformations with this tutorial.
Not all transformations are created equal! Congruence transformations, or isometries, have a special property that distinguishes them from other transformations. This tutorial will show you what makes them special!
Dilation allows you to shrink or enlarge the size of a figure without changing its shape. In this tutorial, follow along as you see how dilate a figure by a given scale factor. Check it out!
When someone's eyes dilate, their pupils get bigger or smaller, but they always stay the same shape. Dilation in math is very similar. When you dilate a figure, you change the size of the figure without changing its shape. This tutorial introduces you to dilation. Take a look!
Reflecting a figure over the y-axis can be a little tricky, unless you have a plan. In this tutorial, see how to use the graph of a figure to perform the reflection. Check it out!
When you have two congruent figures, that means that corresponding sides and corresponding angles are congruent. Get some practice identifying corresponding sides and angles by following along with this tutorial!
Rotating a figure about the origin can be a little tricky, but this tutorial can help! This tutorial shows you how to rotate coordinates from the original figure about the origin. Then, simply connect the points to create the new figure. See this process in action by watching this tutorial!
Performing multiple translations on the graph of a figure is easier than you might think! In this tutorial, see how to use the graph of the original figure to perform each translation in order to get the graph of the new figure. Check it out!
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!
Ever turned a door handle? You were performing a rotation! In math, rotations are just the same! Check out this tutorial to learn about rotations.
Ever slide something across a table? If so, then you have performed a translation! In this tutorial, learn the definition of translation and see some really neat examples. Take a look!
Ever notice that some shapes look the same after you rotate them? These shapes have a property called rotational symmetry! Check out this tutorial to learn more.
