# Rotation Description

Skill:

Locate, given the coordinates of, and graph points which are the results of rigid transformations in all quadrants of the coordinate plane; describe the path of the motion using geometric models or appropriate terms.

# Rotation Description

Explore triangle rotations on the coordinate plane. Animate rotations with different directions, angles, and centers of rotation.
