MAFS.8.G.1.1

Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations:

  • MAFS.8.G.1.1.a Lines are taken to lines, and line segments to line segments of the same length.

  • MAFS.8.G.1.1.b Angles are taken to angles of the same measure.

  • MAFS.8.G.1.1.c Parallel lines are taken to parallel lines.

MAFS.8.G.1.2

Understand that a two-dimensional figure is congruent to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, and translations; given two congruent figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the congruence between them.

MAFS.8.G.1.3

Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.

MAFS.8.G.1.4

Understand that a two-dimensional figure is similar to another if the second can be obtained from the first by a sequence of rotations, reflections, translations, and dilations; given two similar two-dimensional figures, describe a sequence that exhibits the similarity between them.
