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.
Interactive activities allow students to explore the effects of these two transformations. Higher-order activities include an investigation into the composition of reflections in parallel lines.
Working Mathematically: This series addresses all five components of Working Mathematically. In the earlier parts of the series the emphasis is on fluency and understanding. Later parts emphasise reasoning, communicating and problem-solving.
The diversity of learners: Each resource includes an initial activity, supporting students who require revision of key concepts. Each resource also includes a bonus activity containing material that can extend suitable students beyond the curriculum content.
