      Topic Notes
      In this section, we will be showing and describing transformations of given figures on coordinate planes. In the previous section, we used only one type of transformation for each question. In contrast, in this section, we will be using several types of transformations for each question. For example, we will be given a figure on a coordinate plane and asked to describe what combination of translations, reflections and rotations would need to occur to move this figure from one location to another on the plane.
