1.Think of your neighborhood. What congruent figures do you see? |

Possible examples include street signs, windows, car tires, and lawns. |

2. What transformation would map your right shoe onto your left shoe? Explain. |

A reflection would map your right shoe on your left shoe because your right shoe is a mirror image of your left shoe. They would not fit both your feet if one shoe was not a reflection of the other. |

3.Explain why a car driving straight is a different transformation than a car turning a corner? |

The car driving straight is a translation and the car turning the corner includes a rotation. |

4. Think of the transformations that occur in sports. Name sports where athletes make reflections, rotations, and translations. |

Reflection: Scrimmage line on a football field, partners facing each other in dance. |
