Five Minute Maths!!
Complete your 5MM through the following tasks:
Today, in maths, we will move onto translations.
When I think of the word 'translate', I consider its root word and meaning:
prefix trans-, meaning "across" or "beyond."
Here are some examples I can think of...you might have more e.g. transit
This understanding will help me today, as I now know my learning is about moving across.
In maths, when I am translating a shape, I am moving the shape to another position. The shape will not change, but its position in the quadrants will.
Please watch the introduction video clip below, as this is a very clear explanation.
There are two further support videos at the bottom of this page, if you feel you need further examples and guidance.
*For reminders on the four quadrants and what co-ordinates should look like in each quadrant, please see the maths introduction for Wednesday to refresh your memory.
