Geometers graph figure translations, find coordinates for transformed figures, and write rules to describe transformations presented. The 2-page worksheet contains 14 problems, with answer key attached.
Young mathematicians explore the concept of transformations by constructing a polygon on their calculator using lists. They transform the polygon using lists and reflect, rotate, translate, and dilate polygons.
Fifth graders examine the many uses of coordinate grids. In this graphing lesson, 5th graders write data driven equations, discuss the x and y-axis, and determine if using 2 or 3 ordered pairs is better.  Students complete several discussions and guided practices and then work independently on the worksheets provided within the unit. 
Tenth graders explore translations, rotations and reflections of two dimensional objects. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders use transformation to move objects and shapes around on a coordinate plane. They create a hands on transformation using constructions paper and graph paper.
Tenth graders plot points on a coordinate plane. In this geometry lesson, 10th graders identify the different quadrants, plots points on a number line and coordinate plane and solve for the midpoint of line segments.
Fifth graders use the Internet to learn about translations, reflections and rotations. Students access the Transmographer program on the Internet, where they practice what they have learned. Students also complete a worksheet.
Mathematicians analyze the vertex form of a parabola and find an approximate fit of a model. They explain the quadratic parabola function and its properties by developing quadratic models. They use translation and dilation to change the general parabola. PDF downloads of the lab activity are included.
Ninth graders explore transformations on a Coordinate plane. In this transformation instructional activity, 9th graders predict the transformation that will occur in each situation. Students also explore the relationship between a picture and its image when it is flipped two different ways.
Students graph coordinate points to create a picture of Snoopy. In this coordinate point lesson plan, students read a book and learn about Rene Descartes' invention, the coordinate grid.  Students graph a surprise picture on Geometer's Sketchpad.
Students perform translations and reflections. In this algebra lesson, students use the TI calculator to graph functions. They move the functions around on the coordinate plane using translation and reflection.
High schoolers create an image using given coordinates and evaluate how the coordinates change when a slide or rotation takes place.
Students perform transformations and translation on a coordinate plane. In this geometry activity, students move shapes around on a graph identifying translation, image, and transformation. This activity has an interactive part online that provides visual of these transformations.
Students perform translations on different polygons. In this geometry lesson, students create figures that will be used as an assessment to represent transformation. They perform hands on creation and relate it to the real world.
Students explore transformations on the coordinate plane.  In this transformations on the coordinate plane lesson, students use lists to stretch and shrink graphs of ordered pairs.  Students translate, rotate, and reflect figures throughout the coordinate plane.
Students graph and plot on the coordinate plane. In this geometry worksheet, students perform transformation using different coordinate. They identify the type of transformation as it relates to polygons.
Tenth graders have been introduced to the concepts of translation, reflection, and rotation, and have practiced translating, reflecting, and rotating two-dimensional objects on the coordinate plane.
Students are introduced to the concepts of translation, reflection, and rotation. They practice translating, reflecting, and rotating two-dimensional objects on the coordinate plane. students use computers to learn about the three concepts.
Young mathematicians explore how to graph absolute value equations and how these equations can be translated vertically and horizontally. They also use coordinate geometry to locate objects in both two and three dimensions.
Young scholars calculate the area of a parallelogram. In this geometry lesson, students perform translation using a coordinate plane and coordinate pairs. They perform translation on other polygons.
A translation means moving a figure to another location by sliding it. The figure, called the image, maintains its size and shape. You can move the image horizontally, vertically, or a combination of both.
