 # Geometry: Translations on a Grid

In this worksheet, students translate points and shapes using the given right/left or up/down instruction. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Geometry: Position and Direction

Curriculum subtopic:   Draw/Translate Shapes

Difficulty level:   ### QUESTION 1 of 10

Look at the following rectangle drawn on x and y-coordinate axes. When we translate a shape, we follow the set instruction and move each corner in turn.

In this example, this is done by shifting each point 5 squares to the left.

The result looks like this: Rectangle ABCD has been translated 5 squares to the left to form Rectangle A'B'C'D'.

Look at this diagram, which shows a rectangle ABCD, which is to be translated 6 squares to the left to give rectangle A'B'C'D'.

The point A has been translated to the point A'.

Write down the coordinates of B'. (Remember to use brackets when writing coordinates). Look at this diagram, which shows a rectangle ABCD, which is to be translated 6 squares to the left to give rectangle A'B'C'D'.

The point A has been translated to the point A'.

Write down the coordinates of C'. (Remember to use brackets when writing coordinates). Look at this diagram, which shows a rectangle ABCD, which is to be translated 6 squares to the left to give rectangle A'B'C'D'.

The point A has been translated to the point A'.

Write down the coordinates of D'. (Remember to use brackets when writing coordinates). Look at this diagram, which shows a rectangle ABCD, which is to be translated 5 squares up to give rectangle A'B'C'D'.

Write down the coordinates of A'. Look at this diagram, which shows a rectangle ABCD, which is to be translated 5 squares up to give rectangle A'B'C'D'.

Write down the coordinates of B'. Look at this diagram, which shows a rectangle ABCD, which is to be translated 5 squares up to give rectangle A'B'C'D'.

Write down the coordinates of C'. Look at this diagram, which shows a rectangle ABCD, which is to be translated 5 squares up to give rectangle A'B'C'D'.

Write down the coordinates of D'. Look at this diagram, which shows a rectangle ABCD, which is to be translated 5 squares up and 6 squares to the left to give rectangle A'B'C'D'.

The point A has been translated to the point A'.  Notice that we count 5 squares up from A and then 6 squares to the left to get A'.

Write down the coordinates of B'. Look at this diagram, which shows a rectangle ABCD, which is to be translated 5 squares up and 6 squares to the left to give rectangle A'B'C'D'.
