Identify, describe and represent the position of a shape following a reflection or translation, using the appropriate language, and know that the shape has not changed
|Coordinates - reasoning about position and shapes||
Find the missing coordinates on a given shape, reflected in a mirror line, or the midpoints of straight lines. Choose to find coordinates in the first quadrant, or all four quadrants. Provides lots of opportunity to reason about shape and position.

The mirror can be set to a horizontal, vertical or diagonal orientation and then adjusted by dragging it around a central point. Squares on the grid can be highlighted in yellow and the shape created can be moved to a new position on the grid. The reflection of these highlighted squares can be shown in blue, or hidden, with the mirror fixed or while the mirror is being rotated.
