What do you notice when you move the slider?

Rotate the triangle 90 degrees counterclockwise using the slider. -- What are the original ordered pairs of the triangle? -- What are the new ordered pairs of the rotated triangle? -- What patterns do you notice? -- Write a rule to describe this rotation.

Rotate the triangle 180 degrees counterclockwise using the slider. -- What are the original ordered pairs of the triangle? -- What are the new ordered pairs of the rotated triangle? -- What patterns do you notice? -- Write a rule to describe this rotation.

Rotate the triangle 270 degrees counterclockwise using the slider. -- What are the original ordered pairs of the triangle? -- What are the new ordered pairs of the rotated triangle? -- What patterns do you notice? -- Write a rule to describe this rotation.

Rotate the triangle 360 degrees counterclockwise using the slider. -- What are the original ordered pairs of the triangle? -- What are the new ordered pairs of the rotated triangle? -- What patterns do you notice? -- Write a rule to describe this rotation.

How are rotations similar or different from translations?

How are rotations similar or different from reflections?

Is a rotated triangle still congruent? Why or why not?
