Reflecting Shapes on a Grid

Students learn about reflecting shapes on a grid using horizontal, vertical and diagonal mirror lines.  As learning progresses they describe the line of symmetry as a straight line graph.The start recaps reflective and rotational symmetry as this is needed throughout the remainder of the lesson.  The plenary challenges students to reflect an object in a vertical, horizontal and diagonal mirror line.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to reflect an object in a vertical and horizontal mirror line on a grid.
  • Most students should be able to reflect an object in a vertical, horizontal and diagonal mirror line on a grid.
  • Some students should be able to perform and describe vertical, horizontal and diagonal reflections on a grid.

Rounding to a significant figure

When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant.  It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]
