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.
