Translation – what do I need to know?
- You need to be able to perform a translation (on a coordinate grid) as well as spotting and describing a translation when presented with one
- Translations are where an object has moved but remains the same way up
- This movement is described by a vector
- You need to know how to write a translation using a vector (rather than words)
As you are simply redrawing a given shape in a different place on the coordinate grid all you need to do is work out where one of the vertices of the shape translates to and draw the shape from there.
