Exploring Geometric Transformations in a Dynamic Environment - Activity 4: Exploring Glide-Reflections

Author(s): 
Cheryll E. Crowe (Eastern Kentucky University)

This applet and accompanying activities illustrate the glide-reflection of a figure (that is, reflection across a line in the plane together with a translation by a vector parallel to the line of reflection) including exploration of how the glide-reflection affects rectangular coordinates.

Open the pdf activity file and applet in separate windows (or print the pdf file instead) so you can work through the suggested activities.
