# Ch 32: Understanding Transformations in Math

Let us teach you the basic vocabulary of geometry and the definitions of important terms. You'll learn about different types of transformations in these video lessons and quizzes.

## Understanding Transformations in Math - Chapter Summary

The lessons in this chapter will teach you to analyze the properties of polygons and their components. You'll learn to use properties of points, lines, planes, angles, length and distances to solve problems. Rigid motions and the definition of congruence are covered, and this chapter will also explore symmetry in geometry.

You'll study transformations, such as reflections, translations, glide-reflections, dilations and rotations, and learn about their properties. Another lesson covers problem solving by using transformations and their compositions, and you'll get instruction on applying transformations in the coordinate plane. Reflectional, rotational and translational symmetry using transformation is part of this chapter as well. These lessons will give you a solid understanding of geometry topics that include:

• Geometry vocabulary and definitions of key terms
• How to shift graphs on a plane
• Rotations and reflections of quadrilaterals and regular polygons
• Definitions of rotation, reflection and translation
• Drawing transformed figures
• Identifying sequences of transformations that make one figure into another
• Transforming figures by using rigid motions
• Transformations in the coordinate plane

Experienced instructors will guide you through each topic in these concise, engaging video lessons, using examples from the real world to explain their points. Written transcripts of each lesson are available to give you another method to access this material. There is a short multiple-choice quiz at the end of each video lesson, with links back to video so you can review key passages and terms.
