# Which transformation does not preserve orientation

## What transformation does preserve orientation?

**Rotation and translation**preserve orientation, as objects’ pieces stay in the same order. Reflection does not preserve orientation.

## What transformation does not preserve shape?

A geometry transformation is either rigid or non-rigid; another word for a rigid transformation is “isometry”. An isometry, such as a rotation, translation, or reflection, does not change the size or shape of the figure. A

**dilation**is not an isometry since it either shrinks or enlarges a figure.## Does rotation maintain orientation?

**Rotation preserves the orientation**. For example, if a polygon is traversed clockwise, its rotated image is likewise traversed clockwise. Rotation is isometry: a rotation preserves distances.

## Which transformation does not preserve congruence?

Transformations include rotations, reflections, translations, and

**dilations**. Students must understand that rotations, reflections, and translations preserve congruence but dilations do not unless the scale factor is one.## Do dilations preserve orientation?

DILATIONS: ✓ Dilations are an enlargement / shrinking. ✓ Dilations multiply the distance from the point of projection (point of dilation) by the scale factor. ✓ Dilations are not isometric, and

**preserve orientation only if the scale factor is positive**.## Do rigid motions preserve orientation?

[edit] Rigid motions in the plane

translations, which have no fixed points, and are **orientation-preserving**; … reflections, which have a fixed line (the “mirror”), and are orientation-reversing.

## Which transformation preserves orientation but does not preserve congruence?

**A dilation**is the only transformation that does not preserve congruency but preserves orientation.

## Which of the following transformations preserves orientation and congruence?

**A translation**is considered a “direct isometry” because it not only maintains congruence, but it also, unlike reflections and rotations, preserves its orientation. On the other hand, a dilation is not an isometry because its Image is not congruent with its Pre-Image.

## Does rotation maintain congruence?

We now know that the rigid transformations (reflections, translations and rotations) preserve the size and shape of the figures. That is, the

**pre-image and the image are always congruent**. … It is possible to turn, flip and/or slide one figure so it will fit exactly on the other figure.## Does rotation change orientation of vertices?

The order may be clockwise or counterclockwise. It is preserved during these transformations: translations, dilations, and rotations. A change in the

**orientation of the vertices implies a change in the orientation of the figure**.## Does reflection preserve congruence and orientation?

An

**object and its image maintain orientation after reflection**. … An object and its image maintain congruence after reflection.## Does reflection change orientation?

A

**reflection will always change the orientation of a figure**. … A reflection will change the orientation of the vertices of the figure.## Which transformation changes the orientation of the shape?

**Dilations**. A dilation is a transformation which preserves the shape and orientation of the figure, but changes its size. The scale factor of a dilation is the factor by which each linear measure of the figure (for example, a side length) is multiplied.

## What transformation is not rigid?

Non-rigid transformations change the size or shape of objects.

**Resizing (stretching horizontally, vertically, or both ways)**is a non-rigid transformation.## Can a translation change the orientation of a figures vertices?

A translation is when a geometric figure slides up, down, left or right on the coordinate plane. The figure moves its location, but

**doesn’t change its orientation**. It also doesn’t change its size or shape. When you perform translations, you slide a figure left or right, up or down.## Why does a reflection not preserve orientation of a figure on the plane?

the perpendicular distance of the object point to the mirror is equal to the perpendicular distance of its image from the mirror line. Reflection preserve the distance between two points. … Under

**a reflection the image is laterally inverted**. Thus reflection does NOT preserve orientation.## What are the 5 transformations?

These are Transformations:

Rotation | Turn! |
---|---|

Reflection | Flip! |

Translation | Slide! |
