Watch an animated demonstration of translating and reflecting a triangle on the coordinate plane in this video from KCPT. In the accompanying classroom activity, students watch the video and then consider the effect of translating and reflecting on the coordinates of the vertices of the triangle. Next, they draw translations and reflections of a triangle and identify the number of units and direction of translation as well as the lines of reflection in classmates drawings. To get the most from the lesson, students should be comfortable graphing points on the coordinate plane. Prior exposure to reflection is helpful.
