Students learn how to translate an object on a grid using vector notation.

As learning progresses they describe translations in addition to performing them.

**Differentiated Learning Objectives**

- All students should be able to translate an object in the first quadrant using a translation vector.
- Most students should be able to translate an object on Cartesian axes using a translation vector.
- Some students should be able to perform and describe a translation on Cartesian axes using a translation vector.
