# Translations Reflections and Rotations - Geometric Transformations!

TLDRThis video script delves into the concepts of geometric transformations, focusing on translations, reflections, and rotations. It explains how to translate shapes by changing their x and y coordinates and how to reflect figures over the x-axis, y-axis, and the origin by altering the signs of these coordinates. The script also covers rotations, detailing how to rotate a figure 90, 180, or 270 degrees clockwise or counterclockwise and the effects these rotations have on the shape's position and orientation. The examples provided throughout the script are practical and serve to solidify the viewer's understanding of these fundamental geometric principles.

###### Takeaways

- π Translation involves moving a graph or figure along the coordinate plane by a specified distance in a particular direction.
- π To translate a graph right, increase the x-values; to translate left, decrease the x-values; to translate up, decrease the y-values; to translate down, increase the y-values.
- π When translating figures between quadrants, consider the direction and distance of the movement to determine the new quadrant location.
- π€ To find new coordinates after translation, add or subtract the translation values from the original coordinates accordingly.
- π Reflections can occur over the x-axis, y-axis, or the origin, changing the orientation of the figure while keeping its size and shape.
- π For reflection over the x-axis, change the sign of the y-coordinate (x, -y).
- π For reflection over the y-axis, change the sign of the x-coordinate (-x, y).
- π To reflect a figure over the origin, change the signs of both x and y coordinates (-x, -y).
- π Rotations can be 90, 180, or 270 degrees, and the direction (clockwise or counterclockwise) affects the final quadrant location of the figure.
- π For a 90-degree rotation clockwise, switch the x and y coordinates and change the sign of the new y-coordinate (y, -x).
- π For a 90-degree rotation counterclockwise, switch the x and y coordinates and change the sign of the new x-coordinate (-y, x).
- π A 180-degree rotation results in the figure being reflected across the origin, which can be achieved by changing the signs of both coordinates (-x, -y).

###### Q & A

### What is the result of translating a circle from quadrant II five units to the right?

-The circle will move to the right side of the graph, likely ending up in quadrant I, with its x-values increased by five.

### How does a translation five units down affect a graph and its points?

-Translating a graph five units down moves it downward, requiring the y-values of all points on the graph to be decreased by five.

### If a figure in quadrant III is translated seven units to the right and five units up, in which quadrant will the graph end up?

-The graph will end up in quadrant I after the translation.

### What are the new coordinates for point A (-4, 1) after a translation five units to the right and four units down?

-The new coordinates for point A will be (1, -3).

### How do you reflect a figure over the x-axis?

-To reflect a figure over the x-axis, you multiply the y-coordinates of all points by negative one, keeping the x-coordinates the same.

### What happens to a figure when it is reflected over the y-axis?

-When a figure is reflected over the y-axis, the x-coordinates of all points are multiplied by negative one, while the y-coordinates remain unchanged.

### What are the coordinates of point B (-2, 3) after reflecting it over the x-axis?

-The coordinates of point B after reflection over the x-axis will be (2, -3).

### How do you determine the new coordinates of a point when reflecting about the origin?

-To reflect a point about the origin, change the sign of both the x and y coordinates of the point.

### What is the effect of a 90-degree clockwise rotation on a figure in quadrant I?

-A 90-degree clockwise rotation of a figure in quadrant I will move it to quadrant IV.

### What transformation switches the coordinates of a point to (1, -5) from an original position of (5, 1)?

-A 90-degree counterclockwise rotation will switch the coordinates from (5, 1) to (1, -5).

### What rotation results in the same effect as reflecting a graph across the origin?

-A rotation of 180 degrees, either clockwise or counterclockwise, will result in the same effect as reflecting a graph across the origin.

###### Outlines

##### π Introduction to Transformations

This paragraph introduces the concept of geometric transformations, focusing on translations, reflections, and rotations. It explains how translations involve shifting a shape horizontally or vertically, with specific examples of moving a circle from quadrant two to quadrant one by translating it to the right and down. The paragraph sets the stage for further exploration of transformations by providing a foundational understanding of how shapes can be moved and altered within a coordinate plane.

##### π Translation of Points and Quadrants

The paragraph delves into the specifics of translating points and shapes within a coordinate system. It provides a step-by-step process of how to find the new coordinates of points A, B, and C when a shape is translated five units to the right and four units down. The explanation includes identifying the original quadrant and the new quadrant after translation, emphasizing the mathematical process of adding or subtracting values from the coordinates to achieve the desired transformation.

##### π Reflections Over Axes

This section discusses reflections of shapes over the x-axis, y-axis, and the origin. It explains that reflecting over the x-axis involves changing the sign of the y-coordinate while keeping the x-coordinate the same. Conversely, reflecting over the y-axis involves changing the sign of the x-coordinate. The paragraph also introduces the concept of reflecting a shape over the origin, which involves changing the signs of both coordinates. The explanation is supported by examples and a brief overview of quadrants to contextualize the transformations.

##### π Reflections Continued and Rotations Introduction

The paragraph continues the discussion on reflections, providing examples of reflecting shapes over the y-axis and the origin. It explains that reflecting over the y-axis changes the x-coordinate's sign while the y-coordinate remains unchanged. Reflecting over the origin results in both coordinates changing their signs. The paragraph then introduces rotations, specifically 90-degree clockwise and counterclockwise rotations, and how they affect the position of a shape within the quadrants. It uses a triangle as an example to illustrate the effects of these transformations.

##### π Detailed Rotation Examples

This paragraph provides a detailed explanation of rotating shapes by 90 and 180 degrees, both clockwise and counterclockwise. It outlines the mathematical process for rotating points around the origin, including switching coordinates and changing their signs. The paragraph uses specific examples of points A, B, and C to demonstrate how their coordinates change with 90-degree clockwise and counterclockwise rotations. It also explains the effect of a 180-degree rotation, which is equivalent to reflecting a shape across the origin, and provides a method for such a transformation.

##### π Algebra Course Promotion

The final paragraph shifts focus from geometric transformations to promote an algebra course available on Udemy. It provides a URL for potential students to access the course and gives an overview of the course content, covering a wide range of algebra topics from basic arithmetic to complex numbers and conic sections. The paragraph emphasizes the interactive nature of the course, with quizzes and video lessons, and encourages viewers to check it out for further mathematical education.
