Investigate combinations of translations, reflections and rotations, with and without the use of digital technologies (ACMMG142)

LO:To construct simple prisms and pyramids

Know:

  • the basics of 2-D shapes

Understand:

  • that the property of shapes when transformations occur.

Do:

  • I can translate, reflect or rotate 2-D shapes. .

Translation

Translation means “moving” or “sliding”

  • every point of the shape must move the same distance and in the same direction.

Reflection

Reflection means “flipping”

  • every point of the shape is the same distance from the central line

Rotation

Rotation means “turning”

  • the distance from the center to any point on the shape stays the same
