Polygons are “congruent if their sides and angles can be paired so that all of the corresponding pairs of sides and angles are congruent.” Translations, reflections, rotations, and dilations are transformations. Translations, reflections, and rotations create images that are congruent to the original figures. Transformations that do not change the size of the original figure (called the pre-image) are called rigid transformations.

Dilations create images that are smaller or larger than the original figures but retain the same shape. The corresponding angles of the original figure and the new image are congruent but their side lengths are not. In a dilation, the original figure and the new image are similar (same shape, proportional sizes).

In elementary school, a translation was called a slide. A reflection was called a flip, and a rotation was called a turn.

Common Core Standards and Extended Standards
8.G.5 Use informal arguments to establish facts about the angle sum and exterior angle of triangles, about the angles created when parallel lines are cut by a transversal, and the angle-angle criterion for similarity of triangles.
8.EE.6 Use similar triangles to explain why the slope m is the same between any two distinct points on a non-vertical line in the coordinate plane; derive the equation y = mx for a line through the origin and the equation y = mx + b for a line intercepting the vertical axis at b.

Student Objectives
I can identify angles created by parallel lines intersected by a transversal.
I can identify supplementary angles.
I can identify congruent angles.
I can calculate a missing angle measure in a triangle or quadrilateral.
