    Transformations are geometrical shapes that have had their coordinates relocated. They are sometimes flipped over like a mirror reflection or slid over to a new location. Transformations can even change the size of a shape. Rigid transformations are a very particular type of transformation. All transformations retain the same shape even if they change size. A transformation occurs in geometry when a shape is moved to a different position to create a new shape. If an image retains its original dimensions, the new shape or image is called a rigid transformation. Geometrical transformations illustrate concepts such as scale and ratio. They also show how to shapes can remain congruent, or identical, even if the shapes change orientation or position.
