Transformations

There are three types of tranformations, Rotation, Reflection and Translations.

Rotation is when you rotate a shape and it stays the same. It can turn different directions as it can turn clockwise or anti-clockwise. You also need to know where the centre of rotation is as you will not know from which point you are rotating. (If you need help when getting you centre of rotation , if your allowed tracing paper, draw the shape and hold your pencil down on the centre of rotation whilst you are rotating it and rotate it.)

Reflection is when you reflect a shape so it becomes a different way round. You do this exactly the way you would do symmetry.
