Translations





I love throwing art in with my math! The kids at my school aren't offered any electives so any time I can add art, I totally do!


This is one of the ways I introduce translations! We make a design by drawing any kind of line along the bottom of an index card.


Cut the line, "translate" it up and tape!


Repeat on the side!


Step back and look! Maybe turn your shape...until it looks like something!


Maybe a duck! Or a...


Jellyfish! Then, translate your shape on paper tracing, translating, tracing, coloring until you have amazing math art!
