A transformation is when an object is moved through space in a single plane. There are three kinds of transformations. Translations Rotations Reflections What is a Transformation?

### PowerPoint Presentation:

A translation is when an object is moved in a strait line in one directions. Sliding is a common name for translating. Real world application: Cha Cha slide Moving a checker to a new space. Sliding a hockey puck across the ice. Translation

What does a reflection look like? Reflection

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Creating a mosaic with repetitive transformations. Can us geometric shapes. Or you can use pictures. Tessellation

### PowerPoint Presentation:

Tessellations by Escher In the 1920s Escher took tessellations further by using intricate pictures and designs.
