Rigid transformations intro (Full video)

Khan Academy
Supporting grades: 8

Description: Learn what the "image" of a transformations is, what are the rigid transformations, and which transformations are not rigid. Now, we can apply a transformation to this, and the first one I'm going to show you is a translation, which just means moving all the points in the same direction, and the same amount in that same direction, and I'm using the Khan Academy translation widget to do it. Let's translate, let's translate this, and I can do it by grabbing onto one of the vertices, and notice I've now shifted it to the right by two. Now, I've shifted, let's see if I put it here every point has shifted to the right one and up one, they've all shifted by the same amount in the same directions.
