CCSS.Math.Content.8.G.A.1 - Verify experimentally the properties of rotations, reflections, and translations:
CCSS.Math.Content.8.G.A.1.a - Lines are taken to lines, and line segments to line segments of the same length.
CCSS.Math.Content.8.G.A.1.b - Angles are taken to angles of the same measure.
CCSS.Math.Content.8.G.A.1.c - Parallel lines are taken to parallel lines.
