Geometry - Translation

Geometry is something new to all the year 7's in room 20. Today we created a grid and tessellated a shape. The image you see above is the one I have created. I moved my shape 4 down and 4 across, so this means I did 4x4. Room 20 created this grid using Google Drawing and it has really helped us because I think that doing geometry on google drawing is easier than doing it in your maths book.

Today I have learnt that translation means moving a shape or something without rotating, resizing, flipping or anything else. Room 20 will be doing more translation later on this term/year.
