Translation with coordinates
Notes and Guidance
Children translate coordinates and also describe translations of coordinates. Attention should be drawn to the effect of the translation on the 𝑥-coordinate and the 𝑦-coordinate. For example, how does a translation of 3 up affect the 𝑥 and 𝑦-coordinate?
If we move this point down, what will happen to its coordinates?
What if it moves up?
If I move the point two right, what will happen to the coordinates?
If these are the translated coordinates, what were the original coordinates?
