Symbols used in Translation
1. Sketch in a slide arrow to indicate the direction of the translation that this object has
2. In a slide rule, R stands for right, L for left, U stands for up, and D stands for down.
On either grid paper or dot paper, draw an object near the center of the page, then
perform each of the following translations to create a new image of the object. Mark
each translation using a slide arrow and record the slide rule.
a) (R5, D2)
b) (L0, D3)
c) (R1, U4)
3. On a new piece of grid or dot paper, draw an object. Translate it according to a
slide rule you have written. Use this image as a new object and translate it again
according to another slide rule. Copy your original object and the second image only
onto a new piece of paper and ask a partner to determine the single slide rule that
describes the translation of the object onto the image. Compare their single slide rule
to your two separate rules. Is there a relationship between the rules?
