Note: This is not a unit test. These are items aligned to the 3 on the learning
scale for the unit(s).
1) Given the two congruent triangles below, describe a sequence of transformations that would
“move” one triangle exactly onto the other. Be sure to include any reflections, centers and
angles of rotation, and directions and distances of translations. (8.G.A.1)
2) Provide the minimum amount of information needed to guarantee that these two triangles
are congruent. (Note: The information needed is a list of measurements.) (8.G.A.2)
3) Under a particular transformation, point A’ is the image of point A and point B’ is the image
of point B.
a) Give a detailed description of the transformation. (8.G.A.1)
b) Use a ruler and an angle ruler or protractor to help you draw the image of trapezoid
ABCD under the transformation you described in part (a). (8.G.A.1)
c) Are the pre-image and the image congruent? Explain why or why not. (8.G.A.2)
4) The large triangle below is made from congruent triangles.
a) If you moved Triangle 1 onto Triangle 2, which vertices would match? (8.G.A.1)
b) Carefully describe a combination of transformations that would move Triangle 1 onto
Triangle 2. You may add lines or points to the diagram. (8.G.A.2)
5) Use the graph below.
a) Describe a sequence of reflections that transforms ABCD to image A’B’C’D’ (8.G.A.2)
b) Describe a rotation that transforms ABCD to image A’B’C’D’ (8.G.A.2)
c) Describe how the rotation in part (b) affects the coordinates of vertices A, B, C, D

P’Q’R’S’ (8.G.A.3)
9) The diagram below shows PQRS on a coordinate plane. Justify how PQRS was transformed to
P’Q’R’S’ (8.G.A.3)
10)Three triangles are graphed on the coordinate grid. Show evidence that Triangle 1 and
Triangle 2 are congruent by finding one or more transformations that would move Triangle
1 to the exact position of Triangle 2. Give complete descriptions of these transformations.
