Grade 6T visited the Maths is Fun website this morning to revise the various forms of transformations of a shape. Here were found some useful images to refresh our understandings. We used geometric shapes to draw and represent rotation, reflection and translation of shapes in our grid books and on our iPads. Creating a pattern and/or design on the shape added to the challenge. When rotating a shape, we also discussed rotational symmetry through using the logo design powerpoint on this blog.
The other important Transformation is Resizing (also called dilation, contraction, compression, enlargement or even expansion). The shape becomes bigger or smaller:
What is a congruent shape?
