Intro to Rigid Transformations

Jed Butler
Use the checkboxes to turn each version of the image on/off. Move the sliders to transform the object in different ways.
1) Describe each of the transformations. Try to categorize each transformation as a reflection (flip,mirror), rotation (spin, turn), or translation (slide, shift). Go back and add detail. 2) For example, describe the shift by its direction and how far of a movement takes place. 3) For the reflections, try to describe where the mirror (middle) would be. 4) For the rotation describe it in terms of which direction (clockwise or counter-clockwise) and how far (1/4 turn, half turn, 3/4 turn, full turn). Also, where would the center of the rotation/spin be?
