Orientation of Vertices

My Definition

Key Characteristics

The following are true about orientation of vertices:

- It is determined by the order in which a figure's vertices are labeled.
- It refers to the sequence of points after a transformation has been applied to a geometric figure.
- The order may be clockwise or counterclockwise.
- It is preserved during these transformations: translations, dilations, and rotations.
- A change in the orientation of the vertices implies a change in the orientation of the figure.
- This definition is used in mathematics.

Example

This is an example of a quadrilateral with counterclockwise and clockwise orientation of vertices.

Non-example

This is an example of a change in orientation of position.
