Transformation and congruence
Year 8
Have you woken up screaming in the middle of the night as you realise you don't understand Translations? Well, worry no more. This video will allow you to have sleep-filled nights. I take the time to look at the cartesian plane and how it can be used to express coordinates. This helps us understand the form of a translation vector. Knowing how to read a translation vector I give some examples of how to do it with shapes and then coordinates. So much fun! But it doesn't stop there. We look at how to find translation vectors from two shapes and two coordinates. And I even manage to squeeze some Beauty and the Beast into the video! Oh ... and a crab which talks French. What more do you want LOL!
