Flip, Turn, and Slide

In Math, you can move objects in three different ways.

You can **flip** them, **slide** them, or **turn** them.

👉 **Flipping **is like turning something over!

Flippingan object creates a reflection of it.

A **reflection **is what you see when you look at yourself in a mirror.

Let's look at an example. This is a triangle that's pointing right:

Now, what would this triangle look like if you flipped it over the red line.

Its reflection is a triangle that's pointing left.

Let's put them together so we can check.

We see that the triangle on the right is a reflection of the triangle on the left.

Now, how about if we flip this letter over the red line?

This is what it would look like.

Now, we see that we create a **mirror **version of an object when we flip it. 😀

Look at this clock.

Its hands move around by turning.

When weturn an object, we move it in a circle. This is done from a fixed point in the center. It is just like the way that the hands of a clock move.

Let's turn this object.

We can make a **quarter turn** it to the right.

Now, it looks like this.

If we did a **half turn**, it would look like this.

We can also turn objects to the left.

Let's do that now.

This object now looks like this.

Did we do a quarter turn or a half turn?

That's right! We did a quarter turn. 😀

Great job!

Many children like to play at slides.

When they slide, they smoothly move from the top towards the bottom.

Toslide an objectis to move it smoothly from one place to another.

You can slide from left to right,

or from right to left.

You can also slide from up to down,

or from down to up.

In Math, **a grid can help us** see how objects slide.

Did you see the circle slide from left to right? 😉

When you flip, turn, or slide an object, youdo not change its shape and size.

Great job! 😎

Now, you can move on to practice! 💪
