These worksheets will introduce your beginning geometry students to the concepts of translation and reflection.

#### How Does Understanding Translations and Reflections Help You Better Understand a Geometric Shape? When you're learning geometric concepts, confusion must surround you. However, there are supporting concepts available which you can use to make your concepts stronger. Those concepts include translations and reflections, which you can use to work through a few of those complex problems. A translation consists of you moving a shape without rotation or even reflection. So, when you're moving shape on the graph, it'll help you in understanding its measurement. However, reflection as the name suggests that it produces a mirror image with respect to a line, hence, known as the line of reflection. A mirror image is produced on the other side of the line.

Transformations are common movements in geometry. When a reflection is made on a geometric object this flips the object or reflects the objects. Figures can turn at a single point this called rotation. In this series of worksheets you will determine if two objects are moving in the right direction. The objects do not change at all, they just change position. These worksheets explain how to recognize translation and reflection. It is important that students try to visualize the change that occurs to each figure.
