Transformations: Exercise 1
- Tim Brzezinski
In the applet below, a pink rectangle and an unfilled rectangle are shown. Your job is to use the transformational tools of GeoGebra to superimpose (map) the pink rectangle perfectly onto the blank rectangle. To see your work presented in a different context (problem) at any time, select the New Context button. To remove the pink shading from the original rectangle, slide the given slider to the left. Feel free to move any of the white points around (at any time) to change the size of the original rectangle. To create a new exercise, select the refresh icon in the upper right hand corner.
Questions: 1) What transformation(s) did you use in your mapping? 2) What is common about all these transformations you've listed?
