Ch 63: MTTC Math (Secondary): Transformations

About This Chapter

Review this chapter's online video lessons, which focus on different types of transformations in mathematics. After watching the lessons and taking the chapter's quizzes, you might be more prepared when you take the MTTC Math (Secondary) examination.

MTTC Math (Secondary): Transformations - Chapter Summary

This chapter could help you to further develop your ability to perform transformations prior to taking the MTTC Math (Secondary) examination. It consists of educational video lessons that provide tips for drawing various shapes and outline the rules for performing reflections. Watching the videos could assist you with:

  • Understanding rotations and reflections in math
  • Explaining math translations and illustrating two-dimensional shapes
  • Recognizing different kinds of symmetry
  • Graphing reflections across the origin, line y = x and the axes
  • Locating a set of coordinates
  • Rotating a shape and graphing rotations

Since you've likely studied these transformations concepts before, you could use these video lessons as tutorials or study tools while you prepare for the MTTC Math (Secondary) examination. The material in the videos is presented by seasoned mathematics instructors. Utilize the video tags to locate different lesson topics or take the handy quizzes that test your progress.

MTTC Math (Secondary): Transformations Chapter Objectives

Your ability to understand and perform math transformations will be evaluated during the 'Measurement and Geometry' sub-area of the MTTC Math (Secondary) examination. This third sub-area of the four-part examination amounts to 22% of the score. Demonstrate your qualifications to teach transformations and other topics by applying what you reviewed in this chapter's video lessons. The examination is comprised of 80 multiple-choice questions and is administered in two forms. The paper-based examination has a time limit of four hours and 30 minutes, and the computer-based testing process must not exceed two hours and 30 minutes.

Rotations in Math: Definition & Overview

1. Rotations in Math: Definition & Overview

A geometric rotation refers to the rotating of a figure around a center of rotation. This lesson will get you going on rotations, give you some examples, and end with a quiz that tests your knowledge of rotations.

Reflections in Math: Definition & Overview

2. Reflections in Math: Definition & Overview

A reflection of an object is a 'flip' of that object across a line. This lesson will describe the basics of reflection, how to recognize one and how to create one.

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

3. 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

4. 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

5. 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

6. 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.

Graphing Translations & Finding a Set of Coordinates

7. Graphing Translations & Finding a Set of Coordinates

In this lesson, you're going to learn how to translate figures by counting boxes, find the coordinates of points, and learn how to translate a figure more quickly using simple math.

Rotating Shapes by Degrees, Center & Direction

8. Rotating Shapes by Degrees, Center & Direction

In this lesson, you're going to learn about the definition and basic concept of rotation as well as how to rotate any shape about the origin in a coordinate plane. Finish up the lesson, then test your understanding with a quiz!

How to Graph Reflections Across Axes, the Origin, and Line y=x

9. How to Graph Reflections Across Axes, the Origin, and Line y=x

A graph can be reflected in three ways - across the axes, the origin and the line y = x. There are specific rules to perform each reflection. This lesson will describe those rules and show you how to perform these reflections.
