              Translating Functions

              Students learn about translating functions and describing graphical transformations in the form f(x+a) for horizontal translations and f(x) + a for vertical translations.  As learning progresses they are challenged to describe combinations of the two using the correct function notation.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to recognise a horizontal and vertical translation from function notation.
              • Most students should be able to perform and describe a vertical and horizontal translation using function notation.
              • Some students should be able to derive the equation of a transformed function in terms of y.

              Preparing Students for a Mathematics Exam

              Preparing students for a mathematics exam takes time, patience and careful planning.  In this blog I will share my ideas for teaching students how to prepare for their final exams.  These are strategies that have worked well for me and I have see work well for others.  Creative writing to formulate ideas Students need space […]

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
