Transformations - Translations Discovery Worksheets
#1 Experimenting with Translations
Students will be able to describe the effects of translations on similarity and congruence of lines, line segments, and angles; identify changes to size, shape, direction, and location of geometric figures that are a result of a translation; and extend their experimental results to hypothetical scenarios.
#2 Graphs and Coordinates of Translations
By completing this geometric transformations discovery worksheet, students will be able to describe using coordinates the effects of translations on polygons. Students work independently, in pairs, or in small groups to complete two activities to promote a strong understanding of patterns in coordinates for translations. Students will practice applying the patterns they discover with a matching activity. There are summary questions at the end of the worksheet to reinforce the main ideas.
