Y5 Maths – Translation, Reflection, Position, Direction

This week, the Y5’s are looking at translation and reflection.  This requires the skill of understanding what coordinates are on grids, how to appropriately shift points to new coordinates (translation) as well as how to reflect shapes using lines of symmetry (reflection).

Ready, set, PLOT! (8,2). What do the numbers refer to? What are the new coordinates if you shift it up by 3?
