Transformations 3-6, 3-7, & 3-8

Transformations3-6, 3-7, & 3-8

- Movements of a figure in a plane
- May be a SLIDE, FLIP, or TURN
- a change in the position, shape, or size of a figure.

Original

To identify the image of point A, use prime notation Al.

You read Al as “A prime”.

The symbol ‘ is read “prime”.

ABC has been moved to A’B’C’.

A’B’C’ is the image of ABC.

- a transformation that moves each point of a figure the same distance and in the same direction.
AKA - SLIDE

Can be written as:

(Right 4, Down 3)

Rule: (x,y) (x+4, y-3)

Translations

Example 1: If triangle ABC below is translated 6 units to the right and 3 units down, what are the coordinates of point Al.

A (-5, 1)B (-1, 4)C (-2, 2)

Rule (x+6, y-3)

-First write the rule and then translate each point.

Cl = (4, -1)

Al = (1, -2)

Bl = (5, 1)

-Now graph both triangles and see if your image points are correct.

Example 2: Triangle JKL has vertices J (0, 2), K (3, 4), L (5, 1). Translate the triangle 4 units to the left and 5 units up. What are the new coordinates of Jl?

-First graph the triangle and then translate each point.

Kl = (-1, 9)

Ll = (1, 6)

Jl = (-4, 7)

-You can use arrow notation to describe a translation.

For example: (x, y) (x – 4, y + 5) shows the ordered pair (x, y) and describes a translation to the left 4 unit and up 5 units.

Graph each point and its image after the given translation.

Example 3: Write a rule that describes the translation below

Point A (2, -1)Al (-2, 2)

Point B (4, -1)Bl (0, 2)

Point C (4, -4)Cl (0, -1)

Point D (2, -4)Dl (-2, -1)

Rule (x, y) (x – 4, y + 3)

Example 4: Write a rule that describes each translation below.

a.) 3 units left and 5 units upb.) 2 units right and 1 unit down

Rule (x, y) (x – 3, y + 5)

Rule (x, y) (x + 2, y – 1)

Used to create SYMMETRY on the coordinate plane

When one side of a figure is a MIRROR IMAGE of the other

The line you reflect a figure across

Ex: X or Y axis

X - axis

In the diagram to the left you will notice that triangle ABC is reflected over the y-axis and all of the points are the same distance away from the y-axis.

Therefore triangle AlBlCl is a reflection of triangle ABC

Example 1: Draw all lines of reflection for the figures below. This is a line where if you were to fold the two figures over it they would line up. How many does each figure have?

Example 2: Graph the reflection of each point below over each line of reflection.

a.) A (3, 2) is reflected over the x-axis

b.) B (-2, 1) is reflected over the y-axis

- Sort the letters of the alphabet into groups according to their symmetries
- Divide letters into two categories:
- symmetrical
- not symmetrical

- Symmetrical: A, B, C, D, E, H, I, K, M, N, O, S, T, U, V, W, X, Y, Z
- Not Symmetrical: F, G, J, L, P, Q, R

This transformation can be described as (x, y) (–y, x).

In a coordinate plane, sketch the quadrilateral whose vertices are A(2, –2), B(4, 1), C(5, 1), and D(5, –1). Then, rotate ABCD 90º counterclockwise about the origin and name the coordinates of the new vertices. Describe any patterns you see in the coordinates.

SOLUTION

Plot the points, as shown in blue. Use a protractor, a compass, and a straightedge to find the rotated vertices. The coordinates of the preimage and image are listed below.

In the list, the x-coordinate of the image is the opposite of the y-coordinate of the preimage. The y-coordinate of the image is the x-coordinate of the preimage.

There are 10 lines of symmetry in this design.

360 / 10 = 36

However to make it look exactly the same you need to rotate it 2 angles.

36 x 2 = 72
