Transformations change the size or position of shapes and a translation is a type of transformation. A translation moves a shape up, down or from side to side but it does not change its appearance in any other way. In this lesson, students will gain a better understanding of vector notation and will be guided through translating shapes by moving all vertices. Students will also be given the opportunity to practice describing translations that have taken place. This class is aimed at students in Years 9 - 11 and is a great revision tool!
