Transformations | the movement of objects in a coordinate plane |

Translation | when you slide an object from one part of the coordinate plane to another |

Reflection | when you flip or mirror an object in the coordinate plane |

Dilation | resizing a shape |

Scale Factor | tells you how much a figure is dilated by |

Vertices | the corners of an object |

Trasformation Sequence | the order of movements of an object in the coordinate plane |
