Geometry Transformations
This is an educational video that shows students reflection (flip), translation (slide) and rotation (turn) in the form of a song and dance. Slide to the right!
Translation
Turn it around!
Rotation
Flip it!
Reflection
When a transformation moves around, whether it is a Rotation (Turn), Reflection (Flip), or a Translation (Slide), it never changes its dimensions (or size).

Geometric Transformations (Math Song)
Hey! I gotta shape
And I want to transform it geometrically
But wait! When transforming that shape
There’s a few options that are available to me
Because I could…

Rotate - turn it ‘round
Translate - shift it left, right, up, or down
Reflect - copy it across an axis of symmetry

Hey! I gotta shape
It looks great but I want to tesselate it
That’s where, that shape
It fills up a flat space completely
With no overlaps or gaps

Rotate - turn it ‘round
Translate - shift it left, right, up, or down
Reflect - copy it across an axis of symmetry
