Defining Reflections

Unit 4: Defining Transformations
Lesson 3 of 7

Objective: SWBAT show that when a figure is reflected, the line of reflection is the perpendicular bisector of all segments connecting points on the preimage to their corresponding points on the image.

Big Idea: Mirror, mirror, on the wall...what defines reflections all? In this lesson, we'll formalize the definition of reflection in the coordinate plane.
