A musical slide show of 7th grade students tessellation projects. There is a definition at the beginning of the video of tessellation and where you can find tessellation. The video then shows how the students took a square and moved it into action ...using three types of tesselations-translation, rotation, and reflection. (02:45)[more]

This short animation, from the Pilot Math 7 series, introduces the concept of Transformations when some of the Pilot gang find a thrill with transforming robots and teach their robot Zinc to do some transformation tricks.

Investigate shape transformations and understand how rotations, translations, dilations and reflections work. Understand the five characteristics of transformations and why certain transformations are isometric.

Models of translations, reflections, dilations and rotations. Teacher explains clearly and slowly. Shows alternate methods for performing the operations. Contains 4 different sections, so the video can be stopped after each section for practice. T...he background is a bit distracting.[more]

This lecture is a review of rotations, reflections, and translations. The instructor uses graph paper to illustrate and explain various types of transformations. The instructor uses a study guide for the examples in his lecture, but it would be fai...rly easy to use graph paper to follow along with the examples. He also talks about how to correctly name the new transformations.[more]

How to Draw and Identify Transformations - TenMarks teaches you how to draw and identify transformations. The instructor uses computer software for demonstration. (03:39)

Many times in mathematics and in geometry in particular,
visualization of the concepts that are being taught is difficult for
students. This problem can be avoided with the use of a tool such as
Geometers Sketchpad. One of the best attributes of t...his program is that it is not a drill and practice program, but instead it requires the
students further develop their understanding of mathematical concepts. This lesson was designed to help make the concepts of translations, rotations, and reflections clearer because students are able visualized and manipulate virtual objects in the plane.[more]

This video is about translations.. It discusses what they are and how to do them. No sound in this video but there are text explanations on the screen with demonstrations of transformations.

This lesson focuses on explaining two types of geometric transformations: translations and reflections. The instructor uses a virtual white board to give examples and chances to select the correct answers.

In this video, two equations are graphed and the graphs are then compared to see if they represent a translation, dilation, or reflection. Examples and explanations of translations and dilations are shown. (02:46)
