VIC: Transformations 1 - Translations, a graphical approach

by Frank Moya


The aim of this activity is for students to develop an understanding of translations through algebra rather than memorising formats and associating potentially erroneous logic.


  • Transformation
  • Translation
  • Towards or Away from axis
  • Horizontal or Vertical

About the Lesson

Students can edit the algebra that defines the translated point. The discrete connection between the algebra and the visual helps students understand the connections.
