Unit Squares and Triangles
This is an interesting geometry problem. Given the figure, find the area of a triangle that is created by the intersecting lines. The solution requires one to use what he/she knows about coordinate geometry, as well as triangle and angle congruence, rigid motion, rotation, translation, and the distance formula.

Geometry: Translations and Reflections
Group work and participation is used to perform a specified translation or reflection. In this geometrical translation lesson, small groups of pupils are each given a shape to plot on a coordinate grid. Each shape is then translated or reflected according to the directions given to each group.

How Do You Translate a Polynomial Function Vertically?
Want to move a graphed function up or down? This is called a function translation. This video looks at translating a cubic function up three units. It considers the function in standard form, the graph of the function, and a table of values of the function, to see how each is affected by this function translation.

Graphic Art Contest
Creativity is endless when your mathematicians take a simple image and use transformations to create their own poster inspired by geometry. While certain rotations and reflections are required, learners will be able to create ten new images by flipping, moving, spinning, and zooming their original using Word.

Exploring Quadratic Data Using Translation and Dilation
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.

How Do You Use Coordinates to Translate a Figure Horizontally?
There are many ways to transform a figure on a coordinate plane. This problem requires the movement to be four units horizontally to the right. Using the original coordinate pairs, a positive 4 can be added to each x-value to get the new coordinate points.

How Do You Use Coordinates to Translate a Figure Vertically?
Transform the figure six units vertically down. Use the given coordinate points to translate by subtracting 6 from each of the given y-values. Then plot the new coordinates points and connect the dots.

Verifying Triangles are Congruent
Here the focus is on triangle congruence. Through an activity that requires investigation, questioning, and working together, geometers learn to identify corresponding parts of triangles to determine if the triangles are congruent. Triangles are transformed through reflection, rotation, and translation.
