Definitions

  Image: A new figure that results from the
   transformation of a figure in a plane.
  Preimage: The original image in the
   transformation of a figure in a plane.
  Transformation: The operation that maps,
   or moves, a preimage onto an image.
  Isometry: A transformation that preserves
   lengths. Also known as rigid transformations.
Types of Transformations

  Translation: A transformation that maps
   every point on the preimage the same distance
   to the image.
  Reflection: A transformation that flips the
   preimage across an axis onto the image (Like
   a mirror would do to an image).
  Rotation: A transformation that rotates the
   preimage around an angle onto the image.
Symbols
  The following symbol is used to show a
   transformation. →
  ∆ABC → ∆DEF
  This means triangle ABC is transformed to
   triangle DEF.
  What is the image?
    ∆DEF
  What is the preimage?
    ∆ABC
Transformations

  Think of it as dragging a figure to another
   area.
Reflections

  Remember a mirror. The image is
   reversed or flipped.
Rotations

  Think of a merry-go-round. The image is
   turning about a center.

Isometry

  A transformation that preserves length. Hence,
   the size of the preimage is the same size as
   the image. All corresponding parts are
   congruent. The following reflection is an
   isometry.
Is it an isometry?
