Identifying Translations Worksheets

How do you work with Geometric Translations? In geometric transformations, translation describes a function that moves or slides a subject to a certain distance. The shape, size, or measurements of the objects remains the same without being reflected, resized, or rotated in any way. When performing translation, we have to move every point of the object to the same distance. The initial object or the figure on which translation is being performed is known as the pre-image, and the figure obtained translation is known as the image. When we work with translation, the problem can be represented in different ways. You may get a figure presented on a graph; then, you will be given a direction and distance for translation.
Geometric Translations
Let's work off of a cool hand drawing I just made on a napkin. High tech, I know... But the point is to show you how tangible these things are. For example, you are given a figure like the one drawn above. You are asked to perform translation down to 7. You will take each vertex and countdown to seven. So, for instance, the point present at (1,5) will shift to (1,-2). Note that you aren’t supposed to move the figure on the x-axis; you only have to move the figure on the y-axis (down to 7). Move the remaining vertices in the same way. You will get the figure at the following points: - (1,3) will shift to (1,-4), (3,5) will shift to (3,-2), (3,3) will shift to (3,-4).

"A straight line is the shortest distance between two points," the geometry teacher said directly. And the geometry teacher was sometimes acute, sometimes obtuse, but she was always right.
Teacher: Now suppose the number of sheep is x...

Student: Yes sir, but what happens if the number of sheep is not x?
