: Transformations: Rotations
by Texas Instruments

Published on March 16, 2011

#### Objectives

• Students will identify a rotation as an isometry, also called a congruence transformation.
• Students will identify which properties (side length, angle measure, perimeter, area, and orientation) of a figure are preserved in a rotation and which are not.
• Students will describe the relationship between the sign of the angle and the direction of rotation.
• Students will identify coordinates of an image that is rotated about the origin through angles of ±90°, ±180°, ±270°, and ±360°.
• Students will generalize the relationship between the coordinates of a pre-image and its image in a rotation about the origin in the coordinate plane.
• Look for and make use of structure. (CCSS Mathematical Practice)
• Look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning. (CCSS Mathematical Practice)
