So far in our maths rotations we have learnt about the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. Today we are going to look at the translation of shapes. When working with shapes we need to understand the following terms:

–       Rotate (turn)

–       Flip (reflection)

–       Slide

–       Symmetry

We will use the video link below to help us understand the translation of shapes.
