ISOMETRIES: Rigid Motions in (or about) the plane. Also called "Isometries"Orientation preservingTranslationsRotationsOrientation reversingReflectionsGlide reflections

Video : Isometries

The video introduced the four isometries we have discussed:

reflections, rotations, translations, and glide reflections.

It was shown that the product of two reflections is either a rotation (if the axes of the reflection intersect) or a translation (if the axes of the reflection are parallel).

Wingeometry demonstration for reflection- one and two reflections

What about 3 reflections?

Every plane isometry is the product of at most three reflections.

discuss basic idea:

Reflection is related to "perpendicular bisector" of PP'

With a triangle the 3 vertices ABC -> A'B'C' may be related to at most 3 lines of reflection.

Two reflections = rotation or translation.

Three reflections = reflection or glide reflection

- Some Issues we'll consider in space:

- Platonic (regular convex polyhedra) Solids

- Why are there only 5?

- Regular polygons around a vertex.
- All vertices are "the same".
- Symmetries (Isometries) in the plane compared to those in space- an introduction:

- Translations
- Rotations: Center point - central axis
- Reflection : across line - across plane
- Symmetries of the cube:

- Rotations
- reflections
- rotation- reflection

- Isometries in space: products of reflections in space:

- Rotations and translations
- Applications to dance
