Take some grid paper and using your iPad take a photo series of an object moving in 90* intervals. This should be labeled.

Then take some photos of that object using reflection and translation. This also needs to be properly labelled.

At the end add in a slide that includes the definition in the 3 areas.

Extension activity*

Start at the corner of a sheet of grid paper. Write a code to move to the diagonal corner of the paper. Make sure that you include rotation, reflection and translation to make the path more interesting.

You may film your object completing the coded journey!
