Vocab and other stuff from Ch. 9


a transformation in which the preimage and image are congruent


a transformation representing a flip of the figure over a point, line, or plane

(a, -b)

the image of (a, b) reflected over the x-axis

(-a, b)

the image of (a, b) reflected over the y-axis

(-a, -b)

the image of (a, b) reflected through the origin

(b, a)

the image of (a, b) reflected over the line y = x


a transformation that moves all points of a figure the same distance in the same direction


a transformation made up of successive transformations


a transformation that turns every point of a preimage through a specified angle and direction about a fixed point

angle of rotation

the angle through which a preimage is rotated to form the image

rotational symmetry

If a figure can be rotated less that 360° about a point so that the image and the preimage are indistinguishable, then the figure has ___


# of rotations less than 360° that produce an image indistinguishable from the original


360° divided by the order


a pattern that covers a plane by transforming the same figure or set of figures so that there are no overlapping or empty spaces


if a tessellation is formed by only one type of regular polygon, then the tessellation is ___


if a uniform tessellation is formed by more than one type of regular polygon, then the tessellation is ___


a tessellation that has the same arrangement of shapes and angles at each vertex is called ___


a transformation that enlarges or reduces a figure


if |r| > 1, the dilation is a(n) ___


if 0 > |r| > 1, the dilation is a(n) ___

congruence transformation

if |r| = 1, the dilation is a(n) ___
