Translations

Students learn that when a figure slides to a new position without flipping or turning, the transformation is called a translation. Students are then asked to describe a given translation on a coordinate system. For example, the figure has been translated 5 units to the right and 3 units up. Students are also asked to translate given figures on a coordinate system. For example, translate the given figure 1 unit to the right and 4 units down.
