# Exploring Reflections

## Create a polygon!

**Part 1:**

- Use the polygon tool: to create a quadrilateral on the coordinate plane below.
- Select one of the vertices of your quadrilateral and show the name of it by selecting the text tool: and select "name". Repeat this process for all of the vertices. *Note: make sure before you select something, you have clicked on the move tool: !!
- Use the reflect about line tool: by clicking first on the tool, then one of the vertices of the quadrilateral, and finally click on the x-axis.
- Repeat step 3 for all of the vertices of your quadrilateral.
- Record the coordinate pair for the original quadrilateral and the image.

**Part 2:**

- Use the polygon tool: to create a quadrilateral on the coordinate plane below.
- Select one of the vertices of your quadrilateral and show the name of it by selecting the text tool: and select "name". Repeat this process for all of the vertices. *Note: make sure before you select something, you have clicked on the move tool: !!
- Use the reflect about line tool: by clicking first on the tool, then one of the vertices of the quadrilateral, and finally click on the y-axis.
- Repeat step 3 for all of the vertices of your quadrilateral.
- Record the coordinate pair for the original quadrilateral and the image.

## Questions:

- What do you notice happens with the coordinates of the points when you reflect the quadrilateral over the x-axis?
- What do you notice happens with the coordinates of the points when you reflect the quadrilateral over the y-axis?
