Presentation Transcript

### Rotations

• Identify rotations and rotational symmetry.

• Rotation

• Center of rotation

• Angle of rotation

• Rotational symmetry

• Rotation – transformation that turns every point of a pre-image through a specified angle and direction about a fixed point.

fixed point

• Center of rotation – fixed point of the rotation.

Center of Rotation

• Angle of rotation – angle between a pre-image point and corresponding image point.

Rotation

Tell whether each transformation appears to be a rotation. Explain.

B.

A.

No; the figure appears

to be flipped.

Yes; the figure appears

to be turned around a point.

Tell whether each transformation appears to be a rotation.

b.

a.

Yes, the figure appears to be turned around a point.

No, the figure appears to be a translation.

• Rotational symmetry – A figure in a plane has rotational symmetry if the figure can be mapped onto itself by a rotation of 180⁰ or less.

Has rotational symmetry because it maps onto itself by a rotation of 90⁰.

Whena figure can be rotated less than 360° and the image and pre-image are indistinguishable (regular polygons are a great example).

SOLUTION

a.

Yes. A rectangle can be mapped onto itself by a clockwise or counterclockwise rotation of 180° about its center.

Example 2

Identify Rotational Symmetry

Does the figure have rotational symmetry? If so, describe the rotations that map the figure onto itself.

Yes. A regular hexagon can be mapped onto itself by a clockwise or counterclockwise rotation of 60°, 120°, or 180° about its center.

c.

No. A trapezoid does not have rotational symmetry.

Does the figure have rotational symmetry? If so, describe the rotations that map the figure onto itself.

3.

Regular octagon

yes; a clockwise or counterclockwise rotation of 45°, 90°, 135°, or 180° about its center

Rotation in a Coordinate Plane

• For a Rotation, you need;

• An angle or degree of turn

• Eg 90° or a Quarter Turn

• E.g. 180 ° or a Half Turn

• A direction

• Clockwise

• Anticlockwise

• A Centre of Rotation

• A point around which Object rotates

Example 4

Rotations in a Coordinate Plane

Sketch the quadrilateral with vertices A(2, –2),B(4, 1), C(5, 1), andD(5, –1). Rotate it 90° counterclockwise about the origin and name the coordinates of the new vertices.

Use a protractor and a ruler to find the

rotated vertices.

The coordinates of the vertices of the image are A'(2, 2),B'(–1, 4), C'(–1, 5),andD'(1, 5).
