This week I'd like for you to hand in your answer on paper. Here are the questions:
What would the word HOT look like after being rotated 180°?
What would it look like after being rotated 270°?
What would it look like after being reflected across a vertical line just to its right?
What would it look like after being reflected across a horizontal line below it?
Your paper should have 4 answers on it. All you need to do is draw what each transformation should look like.default
