## What are translations on a coordinate plane?

A translation is a transformation that occurs when a figure is moved from one location to another location without changing its size, shape or orientation. In the coordinate plane we can draw the translation if we know the direction and how far the figure should be moved.

**What are the 4 transformations on a coordinate plane?**

There are four main types of transformations: translation, rotation, reflection and dilation. These transformations fall into two categories: rigid transformations that do not change the shape or size of the preimage and non-rigid transformations that change the size but not the shape of the preimage.

**What is the coordinate rule for translations?**

✓ Translations are isometric, and preserve orientation. Coordinate plane rules: (x, y) → (x ± h, y ± k) where h and k are the horizontal and vertical shifts. Note: If movement is left, then h is negative. If movement is down, then k is negative.

### What happens to coordinates in translation?

When you perform translations, you slide a figure left or right, up or down. This means that on the coordinate plane, the coordinates for the vertices of the figure will change. To graph a translation, perform the same change for each point. You can identify a reflection by the changes in its coordinates.

**How do you write a translation?**

You can describe a translation using words like “moved up 3 and over 5 to the left” or with notation. There are two types of notation to know. One notation looks like T(3, 5). This notation tells you to add 3 to the x values and add 5 to the y values.

**What are the translation rules?**

Rules for Translations

- One notation looks like T(3, 5). This notation tells you to add 3 to the x values and add 5 to the y values.
- The second notation is a mapping rule of the form (x,y)→(x−7,y+5). This notation tells you that the x and y coordinates are translated to x−7 and y+5.

## What is a translation of a plane?

A translation of the plane is an isometry that moves each point of the plane a distance and in a direction given by a specified vector.

**How do you teach translation?**

- 1 Introduce a compelling text. Introduce a compelling text in the foreign language to get students interested in translation.
- 2 Bring in audio-books. Bring in audio-books.
- 3 Ask students. Ask students to read the novel or play in the original language after listening.
- 4 Blend in music.
- 5 Translate a news story.

**How do you explain translation?**

Translation is the process of translating the sequence of a messenger RNA (mRNA) molecule to a sequence of amino acids during protein synthesis. The genetic code describes the relationship between the sequence of base pairs in a gene and the corresponding amino acid sequence that it encodes.
