# Understanding Vectors and Translations

This applet will allow the user to define a vector using rise and run, and then translate a given triangle with the defined vector.

Step 1 - Define the Rise and Run for the vector using the blue sliders.
Step 2 - Show the mapping vectors for the translation by checking the box next to "Show Mapping Vectors"
Step 3 - Show the translation (Triangle A'B'C') by checking the box next to "Show Translation"
Question 1 - How does the magnitude of the vector impact the location of Triangle A'B'C' ?
Question 2 - How does the direction of the vector impact the location of Triangle A'B'C' ?
