parabola
A parabola is a two-dimensional, mirror-symmetrical curve, which is approximately U-shaped when oriented as shown in the diagram below, but which can be in any orientation in its plane
symmetry
Symmetry in everyday language refers to a sense of harmonious and beautiful proportion and balance
Glide reflections
In 2-dimensional geometry, a glide reflection is a type of opposite isometry of the Euclidean plane: the composition of a reflection in a line and a translation along that line
non-rigid transformation
In mathematics, a rigid transformation of a vector space preserves distances between every pair of points
degree of rotation
Rotational symmetry, also known as radial symmetry in biology, is the property a shape has when it looks the same after some rotation by a partial turn
