Creating Symmetry through Shape Transformations

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites tutorial FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites tutorialCreating Symmetry through Shape Transformations
Translation, dilation, rotation, and reflection are four different, unique strategies used for transforming shapes. – AIO The word “transformation” refers to a movement or change in a geometric shape. If we slide a geometric shape to the right or left, this is called a “translation”.– MathArt

The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards for School Mathematics in geometry says:

“Instructional programs from pre kindergarten through grade 12 should enable all students to apply transformations and use symmetry to analyze mathematical situations; use visualization, spatial reasoning, and geometric modeling to solve problems.” –
Math is Fun – gives an excellent lesson on Symmetry and how Shape Transformation helps us to achieve this. Symmetry is in Nature   Patterns in Nature

Oxford University Press – Explains how symmetry is transformation – Math used in art

Translation = Slide

Art Examples:

Math is Fun – Learn more about translation of shapes and how to make a shape translate on a graph.

Rotation = Turn

Art Examples:

Math is Fun – Explanation about Rotation. Online shape rotater so you can practice. Learn to create Symmetry through rotation – Math is Fun

Reflection = Flip

Art Examples:

Math is Fun – Learn more about reflecting shapes, how to draw a shape and make it reflect using a graph. Learn to Create Symmetry with reflection – Math is Fun Make a design online and see the instant Reflection of it

 Dilation = Grow

Art Examples:

 Math is Fun – Learn more abut dilating a shape and how to  make a shape dilation on a graph

Art Examples:

Math is Fun – Explains point symmetry
