## Can a transformation change the shape?

A **transformation changes the size, shape, or position of a figure and creates a new figure**. A geometry transformation is either rigid or non-rigid; another word for a rigid transformation is “isometry”. An isometry, such as a rotation, translation, or reflection, does not change the size or shape of the figure.

## What are the 3 basic transformations that can be done to a shape?

There are three basic rigid transformations: **reflections, rotations, and translations**. Reflections, like the name suggests, reflect the shape across a line which is given. Rotations rotate a shape around a center point which is given, and translations slide or move a shape from one place to another.

## How do you transform a shape?

**There are different kinds of transformation.**

- Rotation is when the shape is turned around a point.
- Reflection is when a shape is reflected in a mirror line.
- Translation is when a shape is moved a certain distance from its original position.

## What are the 5 transformations?

These lessons help GCSE/IGCSE Maths students learn about different types of Transformation: Translation, Reflection, Rotation and Enlargement.

## Which transformations are Nonrigid transformations?

**Translation and Reflection transformations** are nonrigid transformations.
