Translate A Polygon On A Coordinate Grid Worksheet

8 problems

8th Grade students learn about types of transformations such as translation, rotation, reflection, and dilation. They should understand the concept of translation and develop the ability to translate a polygon on a coordinate grid. Teachers can provide “Translate a polygon on a coordinate grid worksheet” to help them. In this worksheet, students are asked to plot the image of the given polygon on the coordinate plane after performing the given translation.

To solve this worksheet, students should have a deep understanding of coordinate plans and translation. For example, if the vertices of a triangle are A(4,3), B(4,7) and C(8,4), and the triangle is shifted 3 units left and 2 units down, then the rule of translation is (x,y)→(x-3,y-2). Using this rule to coordinates of the new triangle are A’(1,1), B’(1,5), and C’(5,2).
