Reflections_and_Rotations

Reflections and Rotations

Students will reflect figures over the x- and y-axes. By studying what happens to the coordinates of the pre-image and image points, they will write rules for reflecting points over the axes. Students will then rotate figures about the origin, in both clockwise and counterclockwise directions. Again, they will study what happens to the coordinates of the pre-image and image points to write rules for reflecting points 90° and 180° about the origin.
