Text Transformations of the plane

TLF ID M012842

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. There are pages for both teachers and students. The student pages contain interactive questions for students to check their progress in the topic.




Educational details

Educational value
  • This resource is valuable for both teachers and students for an introduction to transformations of the plane. The resource is specifically designed to aid students' understanding of these aspects of the Australian Curriculum.
  • It is most useful in relation to the year 7 content descriptions in the mathematics curriculum that refer to describing translations, reflections in an axis and rotations of multiples of 90 degrees on the Cartesian plane using coordinates.
  • The resource may be useful in helping students to achieve that element of the year 7 achievement standard referring to representing transformations in the Cartesian plane.
