Corresponding Sides Matching sides of two congruent figures
Transformation This changes a figure into another figure.
Image The new figure formed by a transformation
Translation A transformation in which a figure slides but does not turn; Every point of the figure moves the same distance and in the same direction.

Line of Reflection A line that a figure is reflected in to create a mirror image of the original figure

Center of Rotation A point about which a figure is rotated
Angle of Rotation The number of degrees a figure rotates
Similar Figures Figures that have the same shape but not necessarily the same size; Two figures are similar when corresponding side lengths are proportional and corresponding angles are congruent.
Dilation A transformation in which a figure is made larger or smaller with respect to a fixed point called this
Center of dilation A point with respect to which a figure is dilated
