# What is the difference between reflection rotation and translation?

## What is the difference between reflection rotation and translation?

Reflection is flipping an object across a line without changing its size or shape. Rotation is rotating an object about a fixed point without changing its size or shape. Translation is sliding a figure in any direction without changing its size, shape or orientation.

### What is this lesson on translation and reflection about?

This lesson is designed to introduce students to translations, reflections, and rotations. Objectives Upon completion of this lesson, students will: have been introduced to the concepts of translation, reflection, and rotation.

#### What grade level is View PDF reflection rotation translation and reflection?

What are some examples of transformations in math?

Examples of this type of transformation are: translations, rotations, and reflections In other transformations, such as dilations, the size of the figure will change. TRANSLATION TRANSLATION A translationis a transformation that slidesa figure across a plane or through space.

What is transformation in physics?

Transformation means movement of objects in the coordinate plane. Transformation can be done in a number of ways, including reflection, rotation, and translation. Reflection is flipping an object across a line without changing its size or shape.

## Which transformation changes the size of a shape without changing its shape?

Translation, Rotation, and Reflection all change the position of a shape, while the size remains the same. The fourth transformation that we are going to discuss is called dilation. Dilationchanges the size of the shape without changing the shape.

### How do you know if a shape is a translation?

Notice, the shapes are exactly the same distance from the line of reflection on both sides. The line of reflection can be on the shape or it can be outside the shape. REFLECTION Determine if each set of figures shows a reflection or a translation.
