Identifying Translations Worksheets
How to Identify Translations  The translation is a concept that is used in geometry which means "moving." Moving is not the same as rotating, resizing or any other manipulation. For instance, a point is moved in a straight line and in the same direction. For instance, if a triangle is placed at coordinates (2, 5), (5, 7) and (1, 10). Now, you have to move the triangle horizontally at 2 points and vertically at 3 points. In this scenario, every point will move according to the instructions given and form a figure known as the "image" of the object. Thus, the end figure will be placed on coordinates, (4,8), (7, 10) and (3, 13).

Basic Lesson
Guides students through solving Identifying Translations. The original object and its translation have the same shape and size, and they face in the same direction.
