Good morning!

 

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

  • translate - as in convert/ change one language across into another, or to understand words in a different language/position
  • transplant - to move an object across from one place to another 

 

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.
