Dilations in the Plane

Dilation (Geometry) 
Cabri Jr. 
Activity 

[0]

A dilation is a transformation that produces a figure with a different size from that of the original figure. In this activity, students explore the properties of dilations and the relationships betwe...

Rotations in the Plane

Rotation (Geometry) 
Cabri Jr. 
Activity 

[0]

A rotation around a point is one of three types of rigid transformations. It is a transformation that turns a figure a certain number of degrees about a certain point. This activity explores the prope...
