Translation in the Cartesian Plane
Move around the copy of the two segments. Whilst you to do so, consider and then answer the following questions:
- What result about translation in the Cartesian plane can you infer?
- Do points stay in the same relative place?
- Do angles stay the same size?
- What does this mean for Corresponding angles?
- Challenge: Can you think of a situation in which this wouldn’t work?
- Where would translation across a surface alter relative distances and angles?
