Exploring Rotations

A rotation is a transformation that turns a figure around a given point called the center of rotation. The image has the same size and shape as the preimage.

The triangle shown on the grid is the preimage. You will use the origin as the center of rotation.

A. Trace triangle ABC onto a piece of paper. Cut out your traced triangle.
B. Rotate your triangle 90Â° counterclockwise about the origin. The side of the triangle that lies along the x-axis should now lie along the y-axis.
C. Sketch the image of the rotation. Label the images of points A, B, and C as A’, B’, and C’.
D. Describe the motion modeled by the rotation.
Rotate ________________ degrees ____________________ about the origin.
E. Check that the motion you described in, D is the same motion that maps point A onto A’, point B onto B’, and point C onto C’.

Question 1.
Communicate Mathematical Ideas How are the size and the orientation of the triangle affected by the rotation?
A rotation is a transformation that turns a figure around a given point called the center of rotation.
The image has the same size and shape as the preimage, but a different orientation.
For example, the side $$\overline{\mathrm{BC}}$$ was vertical and on the image, it will be horizontal.
