## What is it called when a shape is moved from one position to another?

In geometry translation means moving a shape into a different position, without changing it in any way.

## What are the types of transformation moves?

A transformation takes a basic function and changes it slightly with predetermined methods. This change will cause the graph of the function to move, shift, or stretch, depending on the type of transformation. The four main types of transformations are **translations, reflections, rotations, and scaling**.

## What are transformation moves?

**Translation** is when we slide a figure in any direction. Reflection is when we flip a figure over a line. Rotation is when we rotate a figure a certain degree around a point. Dilation is when we enlarge or reduce a figure.

## What are the 3 transformations to move a shape or point?

A transformation includes **rotations, reflection, and translations**. Translations just slide the figure around the grid.

## Which transformations are Nonrigid transformations?

**Translation and Reflection transformations** are nonrigid transformations.

## What is an isometric transformation?

An isometric transformation (or isometry) is **a shape-preserving transformation (movement) in the plane or in space**. The isometric transformations are reflection, rotation and translation and combinations of them such as the glide, which is the combination of a translation and a reflection.

## What are the 5 transformations?

These lessons help GCSE/IGCSE Maths students learn about different types of Transformation: Translation, Reflection, Rotation and Enlargement.

## What is an example of transformation?

Transformation is the process of changing. An example of a transformation is **a caterpillar turning into a butterfly**.

## What type of transformation is a rotation?

A rotation is a type of transformation which is **a turn**. A figure can be turned clockwise or counterclockwise on the coordinate plane. In both transformations the size and shape of the figure stays exactly the same. A rotation is a transformation that turns the figure in either a clockwise or counterclockwise direction.

## What is transformation form?

The transformational form of an equation is **a form that has**. **the x2 by itself**. **y = -x2**. **y = -x2 – 1**. **y = x2 + 8**.

## Which transformations are rigid transformations?

The rigid transformations include **rotations, translations, reflections, or their combination**.
