ACOS Objective 7
ACOS Objective 7
Determine the transformation(s), including translations, reflections, or rotations, used to alter the position of a polygon on the coordinate plane.
Determining the type of symmetry (rotational or line) found in a reflection or rotation
Graphing transformations of quadrilaterals on the Cartesian plane by plotting the vertices
Graphing figures which are similar to other figures using dilations
ARMT Possible Points = 4 (MC)
The four options may be four graphs.
The stem of the item may include a graph.
To change the position of a polygon on the coordinate plane may require two transformations.
The identification of a transformation may be required.
