Transformations are movements or changes that we make to a shape, such as translations (moving the shape without rotating it), reflections (flipping the shape), and rotations (turning the shape).
The sequence of transformations involves combining two or more of these transformations in a specific order. For example, if we first translate a shape and then reflect it, we have a different result than if we first reflect the shape and then translate it.
On this worksheet, you will be given a series of shapes and a sequence of transformations to perform on each shape. Your task is to draw the resulting shape after each composition of transformations.
For example, if the sequence of transformations is “translate left 2 units and then reflect across the y-axis”, you will need to first move the original shape left 2 units and then flip it across the y-axis to get the final result.
By completing this worksheet, you will improve your understanding of how different transformations affect shapes and how to combine multiple transformations in a specific sequence to achieve the desired result. Good luck!
In the coordinate plane how to get a reflection and how to move an object through a coordinates plane is practiced through this creative worksheet.
