This is a 41-page guide for teachers. It contains an introduction to scale drawings and similarity, and in particular the tests for triangles to be considered similar. Applications of similarity are included throughout the module.
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.
This sequence of three lessons explores transformation and symmetry by engaging students in the design of friezes. Students are introduced to simple friezes, how reflections, rotations and translations are combined to create design elements, explore real frieze examples from furnishings in Parliament House and tyres, then ...
This is a 29-page guide for teachers. It introduces graphing of quadratic functions.
The fifth in a series of Syllabus bites related to transformations on the Cartesian plane. This bite covers combinations (composition) of transformations.
This sequence of three lessons explores shape properties and skills in manipulating shapes using transformations. Students create two-dimensional shapes by joining pins on a circular geoboard, explore the different shapes that can be made by joining together a set number of identical equilateral triangles and investigate ...
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 ...
Explore visual perspectives of solids such as cylinders, spheres, cones and cuboids. Match a 2D photo of a group of 3D objects taken from a different viewpoint. Identify the relative positions of the solids by comparing 2D outlines and colours. Rotate the scene until the view matches the original photo. The solids in the ...
