Ch 48: AEPA Middle Grades Math: Transformations

About This Chapter

The AEPA Middle Grades Math exam has been replaced in Arizona with the National Evaluation Series (NES) Middle Grades Mathematics test. This chapter's lessons will equip you to handle questions on transformation on the NES Middle Grades Math test.

NES Middle Grades Math: Transformations - Chapter Summary

Prepare for the NES Middle Grades Math examination by watching the videos in the Transformations chapter. You'll get an overview of working with rotation, reflections, translations and shapes, among other topics. After completing this chapter, you should be equipped to:

  • Define translations, rotations and reflections in math
  • Show how to reflect simple shapes in a mirror line
  • Identify the line of symmetry
  • Rotate a shape by degrees, direction and center
  • Graph reflections and rotations
  • Use distance formulas, including finding distances using the Pythagorean Theorem

These video lessons let you proceed at your own pace, and include written transcripts with key terms highlighted. Video tags make it easy to go back and review certain areas without having to watch the whole video again.

Test your knowledge with a 30-question chapter practice test
What is Translation in Math? - Definition, Examples, & Terms

1. What is Translation in Math? - Definition, Examples, & Terms

In mathematics, translation refers to moving an object without changing it in any other way. This lesson will describe how to translate an object and give some examples. A quiz will follow to test your knowledge.

Reflecting Simple Shapes in a Mirror Line

2. Reflecting Simple Shapes in a Mirror Line

What is reflection? How can we reflect a shape over a line? You will learn about this as well as about the important properties of reflection as it relates to math!

What are 2D Shapes? - Definition & Examples

3. What are 2D Shapes? - Definition & Examples

In this lesson, you will find out how a flat piece of paper will help you determine what shapes are considered 2D. You will also learn the wide variety of 2D shapes you may encounter in life.

Identifying the Line of Symmetry: Definition & Examples

4. Identifying the Line of Symmetry: Definition & Examples

Symmetry can occur in many different ways in mathematics. In this lesson, learn how to identify unique forms of symmetry by finding the line of symmetry.

Distance Formulas: Calculations & Examples

5. Distance Formulas: Calculations & Examples

Let's go on a road trip! In this lesson, we'll practice calculations involving distance, rate and time. We'll also look at how we determine the relationship between distance and fuel.

Finding Distance with the Pythagorean Theorem

6. Finding Distance with the Pythagorean Theorem

How much faster is it to cut the corners in a race around the block? In this lesson, review the Pythagorean Theorem, and figure out how to solve without a right triangle.
