In the direction to the way in which the hands of a clock move around. Moving from right to left in a circular motion.
In the opposite direction to the way in which the hands of a clock move around. Moving from left to right in a circular motion.
This word is a synonym for rigid transformation and literally means "equal measure".
A line which cuts a line segment into two equal parts at 90°.
A line that divides an object into two equal halves, thereby creating a mirror like reflection of either side of the object.
Axis of Symmetry
These transformations maintain the size and shape of the preimage.
These transformations do not maintain the size and shape of the preimage.
This word refers to the arrangement of points, relative to one another, after a transformation has occurred.
The original appearance of a figure in a transformation operation.
The final appearance of a figure after a transformation operation.
Connecting the preimage points to their corresponding image points after this transformation has occurred will always result in congruent and parallel line segments.
Connecting the preimage points to the center of this transformation to their corresponding image points always results in the angle of this transformation being formed.
For this transformation, the axis of symmetry is always the perpendicular bisector of the line segments connecting preimage points to their corresponding image points.
The line segments joining preimage points to their corresponding image points always pass through the center of this transformation.
What transformation can never have any fixed points?
