Learning objects Syllabus bites – speedy sliding

TLF ID M021848

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 and problem-solving activities in later Syllabus bites in this series.




Educational details

Educational value
  • Students find the coordinates of image points after reflection in the axes, using algebra to generalise results. They learn the notation commonly used to refer to image points after transformation. Dynamic geometry activities assist students to conceptualise the concept of reflection and to visualise the effects on coordinates of points.
