# Does Order Matter In Rigid Transformations?

## What is the rule for the transformation?

The function translation / transformation rules: f (x) + b shifts the function b units upward.

f (x) – b shifts the function b units downward.

f (x + b) shifts the function b units to the left..

## Does order matter in transformations?

If two or more of the transformations have a vertical effect on the graph, the order of those transformations will most likely affect the graph. If two or more of the transformations have a horizontal effect on the graph, the order of those transformations will most likely affect the graph.

## What are the 3 types of rigid transformations?

A rigid transformation does not change the size or shape of the preimage when producing the image. Three transformations are rigid. The rigid transformations are reflection, rotation, and translation. The image from these transformations will not change its size or shape.

## What is a sequence of rigid transformations?

A sequence of rigid motions is two or more translations, reflections or rotations performed one after another. Use the interactive below to see if you can map one shape onto another to figure out the sequence of rigid motions.

## Is dilation considered a rigid transformation?

A common type of non-rigid transformation is a dilation. A dilation is a similarity transformation that changes the size but not the shape of a figure. Dilations are not rigid transformations because, while they preserve angles, they do not preserve lengths.

## What are the 4 types of transformations?

There are four main types of transformations: translation, rotation, reflection and dilation. These transformations fall into two categories: rigid transformations that do not change the shape or size of the preimage and non-rigid transformations that change the size but not the shape of the preimage.
