              Translating Shapes using Vectors

              Students learn about translating shapes using vectors. As learning progresses they move from performing translations on a grid to describing translations using vector notation.The start of the lesson is used to recap describing a rotation or reflection that will map an object onto an image. The plenary is based around a jigsaw puzzle where students give their answers in the form of translation vectors.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to translate an object on a grid using vector notation.
              • Most students should be able to perform and describe translations on a grid using vector notation.
              • Some students should be able to perform and describe a translation on Cartesian axes using a translation vector.
