Access Point #: MAFS.8.G.1.AP.3b

Given two figures on a coordinate plane, identify if the image is dilated, translated, rotated, or reflected.

Essential Understandings


  • Model a rotation, reflection, translation and dilation on the coordinate plane using manipulatives.
  • Understand the following concepts and vocabulary: rotation, reflection, translation, dilation.
  • Identify a rotation, reflection, translation, and dilation when it occurs on the coordinate plane.

Category: Access Points
Date Adopted or Revised: 07/14
Cluster: Understand congruence and similarity using physical models, transparencies, or geometry software. (Major 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.
