# Lesson 8

Rotation Patterns

Let’s rotate figures in a plane.

### Problem 1

For the figure shown here,

- Rotate segment \(CD\) \(180^\circ\) around point \(D\).
- Rotate segment \(CD\) \(180^\circ\) around point \(E\).
- Rotate segment \(CD\) \(180^\circ\) around point \(M\).

### Problem 2

Here is an isosceles right triangle:

Draw these three rotations of triangle \(ABC\) together.

- Rotate triangle \(ABC\) 90 degrees clockwise around \(A\).
- Rotate triangle \(ABC\) 180 degrees around \(A\).
- Rotate triangle \(ABC\) 270 degrees clockwise around \(A\).

### Problem 3

Each graph shows two polygons \(ABCD\) and \(A’B’C’D’\). In each case, describe a sequence of transformations that takes \(ABCD\) to \(A’B’C’D’\).

### Problem 4

Lin says that she can map Polygon A to Polygon B using *only* reflections. Do you agree with Lin? Explain your reasoning.
