Transforming - four types
There are four ways to transform an object in mathematics;
- Re-sizing - Enlargement, contraction
- Reflection - Mirrored
- Rotation - Around a point
- Translating - Sliding
To remember these four types think of a
Transformer (Transforming) with enlarged eyes after a night out.
So put on reflective mirrored glasses.
But put them on upside down (rotate). Even when they were the correct way up they still slide off (translate).
The square has been enlarged.
Reflection - Mirrored
The square has been reflected.
The square has been rotated.
The square has been translated (slid across).
