Transformations

In this topic you will learn about the most useful math concept for creating video game graphics: geometric transformations, specifically translations, rotations, reflections, and dilations. You will learn how to perform the transformations, and how to map one figure into another using these transformations.

Learn how to find the reflection that maps a given figure to another, and how to manually draw the image of a reflection.

In addition to the three rigid transformation, there are the dilations, which expand or shrink figures while keeping the same proportions. These are extremely important in the subject of Similarity! Gain experience by performing dilation, learn how to find the dilation that maps a given figure to another, and learn how to manually draw the image of a dilation.

Learn how to analyze a sequence of different transformations performed in order.

Let's continue our deep voyage through the world of transformations! Use your knowledge about the precise descriptions of the rigid transformations and their properties in various situations.
