### Simple coordinates game

This is an interactive resource about plotting and identifying points on the Cartesian plane. The resource can be used in one of two modes. In the View mode, the student can enter the coordinates, and the corresponding point is identified on the coordinate plane when the 'Plot' button is selected. In the Guess mode, the ...

### Cartesian plane

An animated introduction to the Cartesian plane, its components and the use of Cartesian coordinates. An interactive quiz is included.

### The Cartesian plane and plotting points

This is a website designed for both teachers and students that addresses plotting points on the Cartesian plane from the Australian Curriculum for year 7 students. It contains material on plotting points from data in tables and finding rules. There are pages for both teachers and students. The student pages contain interactive ...

### Syllabus bites – mixing it up

The fifth in a series of Syllabus bites related to transformations on the Cartesian plane. This bite covers combinations (composition) of transformations.

### Transformations of the plane

This is a website designed for both teachers and students that introduces some transformations of the plane using coordinates in the Cartesian plane. In particular, transformations, translations, reflections in an axis and rotations of multiples of 90 degrees are discussed. Coordinates are used to describe these transformations. ...

### Syllabus bites – flipping and sliding

This is the third in a series of Syllabus bites related to transformations on the Cartesian plane. Students further their understanding of translation and reflection and explore relationships between these two transformations.

### Syllabus bites – turbo turning

The fourth in a series of Syllabus bites related to transformations on the Cartesian plane. This Bite covers rotation of points.

### Syllabus bites – frenzied flipping

This is the second in a series of Syllabus bites related to transformations on the Cartesian plane. This Bite covers reflection of points.

### Syllabus bites – speedy sliding

This is the first in a series of Syllabus bites related to transformations on the Cartesian plane aimed at Stage 4 Mathematics. Students find the coordinates of image points after translation. In doing so, they develop fluency in using coordinates and familiarity with the Cartesian plane, providing a basis for the investigations ...

### Secondary mathematics: different representations

These seven learning activities, which focus on 'representations' using a variety of tools (software) and devices (hardware), illustrate the ways in which content, pedagogy and technology can be successfully and effectively integrated in order to promote learning. In the activities, teachers use different representations ...
