Describe the rotations and reflections of a rectangle, parallelogram, trapezoid, or regular polygon that maps each figure onto itself.

Essential Understandings


  • Use coordinates to draw plane figures in a coordinate plane.
  • Distinguish between orientations of plane figures.
  • Distinguish between translations, rotations and reflections.
General Information
Number: MAFS.912.G-CO.1.AP.3a
Category: Access Points
Date Adopted or Revised: 06/14
Cluster: Experiment with transformations in the plane. (Geometry - Supporting Cluster)

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
