Transformation

What in the world are geometric transformations? And how do they relate to real life? In this BrainPOP adventure, Moby gives Tim an object lesson in symmetry and transformation by translating, rotating, and reflecting him all over the kitchen! You’ll learn about the three basic types of transformation, and where you can see them at work in the world around you. Tim will show you how to describe each of type of transformation using measurements of distance, direction, and angle, and by identifying the center point and axis. Will Tim ever get back to his original orientation? What is that blue beam Moby keeps shooting out of his finger? Get the answer to at least one of these questions in this math adventure!
