7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions
Goals Identify glide reflections in the plane. Represent transformations as compositions of simpler transformations. Tue, Dec 8, 11:56 AM 7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions

7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions
A glide reflection is a transformation where a translation (the glide) is followed by a reflection. Line of Reflection Tue, Dec 8, 11:56 AM 7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions

7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions
A translation maps P onto P’. A reflection in a line k parallel to the direction of the translation maps P’ to P’’. 1 2 Line of Reflection 3 Tue, Dec 8, 11:56 AM 7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions

7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions
Example Find the image of ABC after a glide reflection. A(-4, 2), B(-2, 5), C(1, 3) Translation: (x, y)  (x + 7, y) Reflection: in the x-axis Tue, Dec 8, 11:56 AM 7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions

7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions
A composition is a transformation that consists of two or more transformations performed one after the other. Tue, Dec 8, 11:56 AM 7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions

7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions
Composition Example Reflect AB in the y-axis. Reflect A’B’ in the x-axis. A A’ B’ B B’’ A’’ Tue, Dec 8, 11:56 AM 7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions

Try it in a different order.
Reflect AB in the x-axis. Reflect A’B’ in the y-axis. A B B’ B’’ A’’ A’ Tue, Dec 8, 11:56 AM 7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions

The order doesn’t matter.
B’ B B’ B’’ A’’ A’ This composition is commutative. Tue, Dec 8, 11:56 AM 7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions

7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions
Commutative Property a + b = b + a = ab = ba 4  25 = 25  4 Reflect in y, reflect in x is equivalent to reflect in x, reflect in y. Tue, Dec 8, 11:56 AM 7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions

Are all compositions commutative?
Rotate RS 90 CW. Reflect R’S’ in x-axis. S S’ S’’ R’’ Tue, Dec 8, 11:56 AM 7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions

7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions
Reverse the order. R R’’ Reflect RS in the x-axis. Rotate R’S’ 90 CW. S S’’ S’ R’ All compositions are NOT commutative. Order matters! Tue, Dec 8, 11:56 AM 7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions

Compositions & Isometries
If each transformation in a composition is an isometry, then the composition is an isometry. A Glide Reflection is an isometry. Tue, Dec 8, 11:56 AM 7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions

7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions
Example Reflect MN in the line y = 1. Translate using vector 3, -2. Now reverse the order: Translate MN using 3, -2. Reflect in the line y = 1. N M Both compositions are isometries, but the composition is not commutative. Tue, Dec 8, 11:56 AM 7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions

7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions
Summary A Glide-Reflection is a composition of a translation followed by a reflection. Some compositions are commutative, but not all. Tue, Dec 8, 11:56 AM 7.5 Glide Reflections and Compositions
