T.i.P.S.

Students must connect the words that describe transformations to the algebraic representation for how translations, rotations, and reflections move a figure on an (x, y) graph. Reflections are limited to two types of reflections, a flip over one of the axes. Rotations are limited to the four 90˚ turns.
Example

A figure is graphed on a coordinate grid as shown below.
The figure is rotated 90˚ clockwise with the origin as the center of rotation to create a new figure. What rule describes this transformation? Justify your thinking.
