I hope you had a fantastic Easter! I had a wonderful time with my family. We made a delicious bunny cake!
This week in geometry we learned about a type of transformation called a reflection. Reflections flip the given shape. The two necessary components of a reflection are an object, or preimage, and a line of reflection.
There are two rules of reflections:
Rule One: If a preimage is on the line of reflection, then it will be itself when you find the image.
Rule Two: The line of reflection is the perpendicular bisector of the segment whose endpoints are A and A prime.
We also learned about rotations this week, which rotate/turn an image around a specific point. The three components of a rotation are the point of rotation, the angle of rotation, and the direction (either clockwise or counterclockwise).
I hope that I have helped to give you a basic idea of these two transformations! Have a great week! :)
