Translation of shapes

Translation of shapes

  • Lesson Aims
  • The pupil will identify the properties of the translation transformation.

  • Name of Model
  • #A car

  • The lesson structure
  • First Stage: A prepatory lesson on the topic of the reflective transformation, reflection and line symmetry,the line of symmetry in quadrilaterals, and rotational symmetry.

    Second stage: The measuring tool,a prepatory lesson on the topic of the reflective transformation, reflection and line symmetry, opposite and adjacent vertices,the diagonal as a line of symmetry in quadrilaterals,rotational symmetry and translation of shapes.

  • Lesson content
  • Translation as one of three transformations-Reflection,Translation,Rotation as studied in elementary school. In this lesson pupils will fold the model of a car and investigate the properties of translation, congruency of shape, the same distance in each translation of the shape and the same direction for each translation of the shape.
