A rotation is a transformation that turns every point of a preimage through a specified angle and direction about a fixed point. The fixed point is called the center of rotation . A rotation is an isometry.

When rotating a figure by reflecting it in two intersecting lines, there is a relationship between the angle of rotation and the angle formed by the intersecting lines. Postulate 9.1 In a given rotation, if A is the preimage, A” is the image, and P is the center of rotation, then the measure of the angle of rotation of is twice

Unformatted text preview: the measure of the acute or right angle formed by the intersecting lines of reflection. '' APA ∠ Corollary 9.1 • Reflecting an image successively in two perpendicular lines results in a rotation. 180 o Rotational Symmetry • If a figure can be rotated less than 360 degrees about a point so that the image and the preimage are indistinguishable, then the figure has rotational symmetry . • A rotation about point O through 180 o is called a half-turn and is denoted by H O . The hexagon has rotational symmetry of order 6 and a magnitude of 60 degrees. Joke Time • Why wouldn’t they let the butterfly into the dance? • Because it was a moth ball. • What happened when the chicken slept under the car? • She woke up oily next morning....
