15.1 Reflections

Many objects in mathematics possess mirror symmetry, or reflection

symmetry. 2-D objects will have a mirror line, and this will divide the object

into two matching halves, one being a mirror image of the other. The matching

halves are congruent, i.e. exactly the same shape and size.

3-D objects will have a plane of symmetry instead. Again, the object divides

into two congruent halves.

You can make a symmetric 2-D shape by reflecting a given shape in a mirror

line. This is usually done using a squared coordinate grid. The mirror line may

then be described by a simple linear equation. The mirror line might be

horizontal (e.g. y 3), vertical (e.g. x 2) or at a 45 angle (e.g. y x).

EXAMPLE

Reflect the given shape in the line x 5

It helps if you rotate your book so that the mirror line is vertical.

EXAMPLE

to form an image Q.

a) Draw the mirror line on the diagram.

b) Write down the equation of the mirror line.

SOLUTION

a)

b) The mirror line has equation y x 1

15.2 Rotations

A mathematical object may be turned to face in a different direction, while

remaining the same shape and size: this is known as rotation. An imaginary

point acts as a pivot for the rotation: this is the centre of rotation. You must

remember to specify the size of the turn, or angle of rotation, and whether it is

clockwise or anticlockwise as well as specifying the centre of rotation.

If you find rotations difficult to visualise, ask your teacher for some tracing

paper. (This is also permitted in the IGCSE examination.)

EXAMPLE

The diagram shows a rectangle labelled S.

a) Rotate shape S through 90 clockwise,

about the origin O.

Label the resulting shape T.

b) Now rotate the shape T through 180 about O.

Label the resulting shape U.

c) Describe a single rotation that would take

S directly to U.

b)

c) U can be obtained directly from S by a 90 rotation anticlockwise about O.

Rotations are often performed with the point (0, 0), called the origin O, as the

centre of rotation, but they can be done about other centres.

EXAMPLE

The diagram shows a triangle M drawn on a grid.

Rotate the triangle M through 90 anticlockwise about the point P (1, 0).

Label this new triangle N.

Anita Bella Cat

If you rotate

a shape and then rotate it

again, the result is

equivalent to a single

rotation.

I m afraid only

one of you is

right.

If you reflect

a shape and then reflect it again,

the result is equivalent to

a single reflection.

15_Chapter15_259-289.qxd 12/1/11 3:20 PM Page 270

15.3 Combining transformations

There are three important geometric transformations that preserve congruence,

meaning that they do not change the shape or size of an object. These

transformations are reflection, rotation and translation.

A translation consists simply of sliding an object left/right and/or up/down. You

specify a translation by stating how far the object is to be moved in each of the x

and y directions, and it can be written as two numbers in a column vector. For

example,

indicates a translation of 5 units to the right and two units up.

In the IGCSE examination you may be required to combine two

transformations. Transformations are said to map one shape to another, that is,

turn one shape into the other.

EXAMPLE

a) Reflect the given triangle T1 in the line x 4, and label the result T2.

b) Reflect T2 in the line x 1, and label the result T3.

c) What single transformation maps T1 directly to T3?

15.4 Enlargements

You should already be familiar with the idea of enlarging shapes on grids.

This should be done in a specific way, using a centre of enlargement and a

scale factor. Rays may be drawn from the centre of enlargement, to show how

the transformation is operating.

There are three different scenarios, depending on the value of the scale factor:

Scale factor greater than 1: simple enlargement the object gets bigger

Scale factor between 0 and 1: the enlargement is a reduction the object

gets smaller

Negative scale factor: the object is enlarged/reduced and inverted.

EXAMPLE

The diagram shows a letter F shape and two points, P and Q.

a) Enlarge the letter F by scale factor 2, using P as the centre of enlargement.

b) Enlarge the letter F by scale factor

Again, draw rays, from Q to each corner of the original F shape.

Then proceed, only half way along the rays (factor is

locate the corners of the enlarged shape (which is actually

smaller than the original).

P

Q

Draw rays from P to each corner of the original F shape.

Then extend these rays so they are twice their original

length (factor is 2).

The rays will locate the corners of the enlarged shape.

The final F is not the same size

as the original, so the two shapes

are not congruent, but they are

the same shape. The two shapes

are said to be mathematically

similar.

If two objects are similar, then they are exactly the same shape, but one of them

is an enlargement of the other. If the enlargement factor is n, then:

corresponding lengths are in the ratio 1 : n

corresponding areas are in the ratio 1 : n

2

corresponding volumes are in the ratio 1 : n

Key points

1 A reflection is specified by a mirror line.

2 A rotation is specified by a centre of rotation, an angle of rotation, and a direction

(clockwise or anticlockwise.)

3 A translation can be expressed in vector form, e.g.

means 2 to the right and 3 up.

4 Two shapes are congruent if they are exactly the same shape and size. Reflections,

rotations and translations all preserve congruence.

5 An enlargement is specified by a centre of enlargement and a scale factor.

Scale factors larger than 1 actually make the image larger, while scale factors

between 0 and 1 cause the image to be reduced so it is smaller in size than

the original.

6 Enlargements do not normally preserve congruence. The object and its image will,

however, be mathematically similar, i.e. the same shape.

7 When solid objects are enlarged by a scale factor, their perimeters increase by the

same ratio. Areas increase according to the square of the scale factor, and volumes by

its cube.

Geometrical definitions

Mathematicians like to attach precise meanings to certain words these are definitions. In the sentences

below the letters of the key words have been replaced with symbols. Find the missing word in each case.

(You will know some of these already, but you may need to look up some of the less well-known ones on

the internet.)

1 An is a mathematical solid with 20 faces.

2 A is the name for a circular prism.

3 If two objects are the same shape and size they are said to be .

4 If two shapes are alike in shape but one is larger than the other, they are said to be mathematically

.

5 Z-angles are, more properly, called angles.

6 lines never touch; they remain at a constant distance apart.

7 A is a solid object in the form of a perforated ring (like a ring doughnut).

8 The interior angles of an add up to 1080.

9 A is exactly half of a sphere.

10 The highest point of a pyramid is known as its .

11 A pyramid with a triangular base is called a .

12 is the correct mathematical name for a diamond with four equal sides.

13 An angle of one-sixtieth of a degree is called a of .

14 An angle of 57.296 is called one .

15 The diagram below shows a cone. This is also a .
