7.13 The student, given a polygon in the coordinate plane, will represent transformations - rotation and translation - by graphing the coordinates of the vertices of the transformed polygon and sketching the resulting figure.

Activity: Build your own polygon and transform it in the Cartesian coordinate system. Experiment with reflections across any line, revolving around any line (which yields a 3-D image), rotations about any point, and translations in any direction.

Activity: Explore the world of translations, reflections, and rotations in the Cartesian coordinate system by transforming squares, triangles and parallelograms. Parameters: Shape, x or y translation, x or y reflection, angle of rotation.
