- TL;DR Summary
- I am asking this question because I am in the process of relearning high school geometry through Khan Academy. I am curious why Transformations, Dilations, and Symmetry help teaching geometry.

Dear Everybody,

I am in the process of relearning high school geometry through Khan Academy. I am current an graduated undergraduate student in mathematics. I am doing this because geometry is one of my weakest subject in mathematics. Second reason is that I want to reason out a problem geometrically. I also want to relearn my university level geometry textbook. I have a hard time with spatial reasoning in general. I am wondering why does learning the rigid transformations and dilations and symmetries help with learning high school geometry.Thanks,
