# Transformation Lab Activity

## Part 1: Constructing the Figure

## Questions:

a. What figure did you construct?

b) Does this figure have symmetry? How do you know?

## Part 2: Reflections

## Questions:

a. How did reflecting figure ABCD change the original figure? (Select ALL that apply).

b. Compare and contrast the pre-image to the image. What do you notice?

6) What do you notice about all of the line segments? Record your observations.

## Part 3: Translations

## Questions:

a. What is the relationship between the vector and the two figures?

b. Using the "Move" (1st button on left), drag the point H around. What happens to the figure?

c. What happens when point H is dragged on top of point G?

## Part 4: Rotations

## Questions:

a. Using the "angle 1" slider, drag the point back and forth. What happens to the original figure?

b. Rotate the object to 90˚, list the coordinates of A', B', C', and D' below.

c. Rotate the object to 180˚, list the coordinates of A', B', C', and D' below.

d. Rotate the object to 270˚, list the coordinates of A', B', C', and D' below.

e. Using the slider, will the two figures ever be in the same spot? Why or why not?
