Rotations are a type of transformation in which a shape is turned around a fixed point called the center of rotation. In grade 8 transformations, students learn about rotational symmetry, which is when a shape remains the same after being rotated a certain number of degrees around its center point. Understanding rotations is important in geometry because it helps students develop spatial reasoning skills and visualize how shapes can be transformed in different ways. They can also use rotations to create symmetrical designs and patterns.
