# Rotation

## "Rotation" means turning around a center:

The **distance** from the center to any point on the shape stays the same.

Every point makes a **circle** around the center:

Here a triangle is rotated around the point marked with a "+" |

### Try It Yourself

You can rotate different shapes (point-by-point) by an **angle**, around a **center point** below. Try and follow what happens each time.
