Activity 4: Exploring Glide-Reflections
This applet and accompanying activities illustrate the glide-reflection of a figure (that is, reflection across a line in the plane together with a translation by a vector parallel to the line of reflection) including exploration of how the glide-reflection affects rectangular coordinates.
Open the pdf activity file and applet in separate windows (or print the pdf file instead) so you can work through the suggested activities.
