Translating - Geometry that is


At the moment Room 20 are learning what Translation is in Geometry, and how to do it. In the picture here, it shows how you translate a shape 2 down and 2 across. I have used a diamond for my example but I am trying to practice with much more complex shapes. For example, many students in our class are creating their own shapes to challenge them selves. Before we did this activity on Google Drawing, I had absolutely no idea of what Geometry Translation was. Now I know, that translation in geometry is moving a shape with out changing it.
Well, at least I think so!
