 4.01 Translations

Interactive practice questions

Consider the point $\left(8,6\right)$(8,6).

a

Plot this point onto the number plane.

b

The point is then moved down by $2$2 units. What are the coordinates of the new position?

$\left(\editable{},\editable{}\right)$(,)

c

The point from part (b) is then moved left by $6$6 units. What are the coordinates of the new position?

Consider the point $\left(4,5\right)$(4,5).

Plot the translation of the point by moving it $18$18 units to the right.

Plot the translation of the point by moving it $12$12 units to the right and $7$7 units down.

Outcomes

GEO-G.CO.2

Represent transformations as geometric functions that take points in the plane as inputs and give points as outputs. Compare transformations that preserve distance and angle measure to those that do not.

GEO-G.CO.4

Develop definitions of rotations, reflections, and translations in terms of points, angles, circles, perpendicular lines, parallel lines, and line segments.

GEO-G.CO.5

Given a geometric figure and a rotation, reflection, or translation, draw the transformed figure. Specify a sequence of transformations that will carry a given figure onto another.
