Translations

Point A = (3,4) Translate point A by 5 units to the left and 6 units down. Do not change the original coordinates, add in a new coordinate B to show the update.
Point A = (-3, 9) Translate point A by 2 units to the right and 8 units up. Do not change the original coordinates, add in a new coordinate B to show the update.
Point A = (4, -1) The translation function is f(x, y) = ( x + 8, y - 11) Graph the original point and the translated point.

If point A is originally located at (5, 6) and the translation can be described by f(x, y) = ( x + 1, y - 3) - what are the updated coordinates?

Do you think sliding a book across a table is an example of a translation? Why or why not?
