Translations Discovery Activity
- Mrs. Clark
Translate your shape.
Now, use the "translate by vector tool" to translate your figure. Click on the translate by vector tool, click on your vector, then click on your shape. You should now see an image and pre-image. You can make the vector shorter, longer, or change direction - your image should move each time you do that. How does a vector help translate a shape? What do you notice about your pre-image and image and the vector?
Use the vector to write the mapping notation and subscript notation for your translation.
