Help with your answer


I need more detailed explanation of Transformation and Isometry. It would be great if you give me some real examples.

Transformation

After any of those transformations (turn, flip or slide), the shape still has the same size, area, angles and line lengths. http://www.mathsisfun.com/geometry/transformations.html

A transformation is a general term for four specific ways to manipulate the shape of a point, a line, or shape. The original shape of the object is called the pre-image and the final shape and position of the object is the image under the transformation.

Types of transformations in math

  1. Translation
  2. Reflection
  3. point reflection
  4. Rotation
  5. Dilation

Isometry

transformation that preserves congruence. In other words, a transformation in which the image and preimage have the same side lengths and angle measurements. http://www.mathwarehouse.com/transformations/

The following transformations maintain their mathematical congruence.

  1. Translations
  2. Rotations
  3. Reflections
